Founded in 2005 by the talented winemaking duo of Jérémie Huchet and Jérémie Mourat, Les Betes Curieuses is a collaboration to explore the distinct terroirs of Muscadet and showcase a more serious and ageworthy side of the region and to do so organically. The wines of the region are considered by many the quintessential wines to pair with oysters and the unique expressions of each vineyard is shown differently in these beautiful wines. We are very happy to offer the following cuvees
