Jean-Baptiste Hardy

Mouzillon - Muscadet-Sèvre-et-Maine

Jean-Baptiste Hardy is one these young winemakers revamping the Muscadet appellation.


After his training at Domaine Roulot and Domaine Leflaive, and working in vineyards all around the world including Patagonia (Bodega Chacra), California (Domaine de la Côte) and New Zealand (Fromm Winery), he took over his family estate in 2018 located in Muscadet-Sèvre-et-Maine.


The estate in composed of 4 hectares planted only with the local variety – Melon de Bourgogne, only from massale selection, from the 1950s and 1960s.

Planted on typical Muscadet terroir : complex soils of gabbros (volcanic soils and fragmented granite), silica and clay. He also has a small negoce activity for producing some outstanding red Loire valley blends.

 2020 was his first own vintage, and it is already a name to watch.
