Emmanuel Merceron, vigneron du domaine

Merceron-Martin, vineyard at the gates of Anjou

This week, we take you to the Loire Valley, between Nantes and Angers, to the Merceron-Martin estate, born in 2011 from the association of Emmanuel Merceron and Olivier Martin.

Emmanuel Merceron, winemaker of the estate

Who are they ?

Emmanuel Merceron, grandson and son of a winemaker, has worked in the family estate since 2003 and moved in 2008 with his father to create the Merceron estate. While Olivier Martin joined him in 2011 following a retraining after a first experience in audiovisual.
The 26 hectare vineyard, close to the Pays d'Ancenis and the banks of the Loire , and its temperate oceanic climate allow the two young winegrowers to produce a wide range of quality wines, from sustainable and responsible viticulture, in is about to obtain the Organic Agriculture label. The soils, mainly composed of schists and mica schists, allow these wines to express their aromas and flavors.

Their wines

Their specialty is Coteaux d'Ancenis , a small, limited appellation, it only has 166 hectares of vines. Domaine Merceron-Martin produces the appellation in red, white and rosé. The Red is a pleasantly balanced wine between freshness on the palate and finesse of aromas, perfect for spring! The White is a real gem: its golden color, its subtly mellow aromas and its mouth of ripe fruit and white flowers.
They also produce an Anjou , a 100% Cabernet Franc, intense and powerful, with round and melted tannins.
Also discover their Muscadet , and their Cabernet d'Anjou, they will definitely make you smile from the first sip.
When it comes to bubbles, Merceron-Martin knows how to please us too! Their Crémant de Loire , its fine and creamy taste, will accompany you during your festivities. Finally, our heart melts for Tentation , an ancestral method, with a vibrant pink color and fruity and delicious aromas, it will leave its mark on people's minds from aperitif to dessert.

Last year, Olivier Martin left the estate, so perhaps some changes will come in the next vintages... let's see what Emmanuel Merceron has in store for us!
