Gaec Topaze- French Winery located in the Beautiful Loire Valley in France

Gaec Topaze is a family run French winery located in the beautiful Loire Valley in the DOC Muscadet in France. The winery sits where the Sevre and Maine rivers meet, providing the perfect location for the Gaec Topaze vineyards. The vineyards are handled with great care and all of the grapes are carefully harvested by hand and gently squeezed until their wonderful juices flow. After being left for a few days, these juices are controlled at room temperature and left to slowly transform in vats. The Topaz remains on the less, which is the natural deposit of the wine, until the springtime during which it is stirred to create increased levels of complexity.

Three AOCs of the Winery

While being part of the DOC Muscadet, the Gaec Topaze winery is also divided into 3 AOCs: AOC Muscadet de Sevre et Maine, AOC Muscadet Coteaux de la Loire and the AOC Muscadet Cote de Grand Lieu.

The AOC Muscadet de Sevre et Maine is one of the oldest Appellations in France and was first established n 1936.

Today it covers a total area of over 10 000 hectares with approximately 2100 wineries and estates. In order to remain a part of this appellation, the Gaec Topaze wines must be bottled between 1 March and 20 November of the year following the harvest.

Grape Varieties

The grape varietal grown at Gaec Topaze winery is the Melon du Bourgogne which is originally from Burgundy but was brought to the Loire Valley area in the 17th century by Dutch merchants. This grape is extremely sensitive in nature and needs to be treated throughout the vegetative cycle. During December the plants are cut from wood from the previous vegetative cycle and each vine is capped so that it has only 2 supporting arms, 2 buds and 1 fruiting rod on a carrier wire.
