Cote de Grandlieu is a wine-growing region located in the Loire-Atlantique department in western France. It is part of the Muscadet wine-producing area, known for producing white wines made from the Melon de Bourgogne grape variety.
The Cote de Grandlieu AOC (Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée) was established in 1997 and is one of the newest wine regions in France. The region is located on a hillside near the coast, which provides a unique microclimate for wine production. The soils are characterized by sand and granite, which is well-drained and allows the vines to develop deep roots.
The wines produced in the Cote de Grandlieu region are known for their fresh and crisp acidity, making them a popular choice as an aperitif or as a pairing for seafood.
The Cote de Grandlieu AOC is a relatively small wine region, producing only a limited amount of wine each year, which contributes to its exclusivity and recognition among wine connoisseurs.
