One of the most historic estates in the Clisson region of the lower Loire Valley. At l’Oiselinière vines have been grown for centuries - in fact leases written on parchment dated 1337, 1471, 1505, 1546 have been preserved. On the parchment dated from 1635 in particular, there is the first mention of Muscadet. It is the first known lease today and is written as follows: “Jean de Goulet de la Fosse de Nantes leases to several private individuals from the Parish of Gorges, a piece of land consisting of 78 plots, known as “Les Grands Gâts” dependent on the land of the Oiselinière in order to plant white Muscadet vines.”
