Domaine des 2 Moulins - Anjou
For 4 generations, winemaking has been at the heart of this estate. Daniel Macault took over the running of his family estate back in 1989 and today there are more than 72 hectares in production covering the complete spectrum of wines available from the region.
It is to be found just south of the city of Angers on the banks of the Aubance river, a tributary of the Loire, an area which gives its name to one of the greatest sweet white wines of the Loire Valley.
From 2019 the estate will be completely organic in production and Daniel's forward thinking has led to trialing of some Mediterranean grape varieties more usually associated with the South of France to see how they grow in the Loire Valley in these days go global warming.
Red, white, rose and sparkling wines are all produced here with the main varieties being, as you would expect, Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc. The winemaking is of the highest order and Daniel Macault is passionate about the wines of the region and oenologue Jean-Michel Monnier is always on hand to lend his knowledge.
