Contrast and diversity of the Nantes wine region
Locus, meaning ‘place’ in Latin, is much more than just a wine domaine. It symbolises the Saget family's desire to play an active part in the revival of Muscadet wines. Convinced of the quality potential of the Loire Océanique region, the Saget family wanted, through Locus, to reveal the incredible diversity of the Nantes wine region. Initially based in the fabulous terroirs of the Clisson Cru, Locus only offers wines made from the Folle Blanche and Melon de Bourgogne grape varieties, and as an ardent champion of these traditional varietals of the Nantes region, is dedicated to producing wines that reveal their finest qualities. Today, these qualities can be seen in a collection of four wines: an IGP (PGI) Folle Blanche, an IGP (PGI) Melon de Bourgogne, a Muscadet de Sèvre & Maine and a Cru Clisson. In the coming vintages, this collection will be complemented by a selection of other Muscadet "Crus Communaux". Wishing to endow Locus with a strong identity consistent with its project, the Saget family has been working closely with Jordane Saget, a well-known street artist in Paris whose inspiration is drawn from places he discovers. By luck or by fate, this patronymic partnership has given birth to Locus’ graphic universe, which borrows from Jordane's art that is unique, poetic and timeless.
