The Muscadet region extends mainly South East of Nantes near the mouth of the river Loire. The most significant and varied appellations by far, representing four in every five bottles is Muscadet de Sèvre-et-Maine, named after 2 small rivers which flow through, this the most monocultural part of the Pays Nantais, South and East of the city of Nantes. Indeed more Muscadet de Sèvre-et-Maine is produced every year than any other Loire appellation.
Chéreau-Carré is one of the leading Muscadet producers with substantial family owned vineyards in some of the best locations in the region. Their vineyard area totals 267 acres of the highest quality soil, making them one of the largest producers of Muscadet. The wide variety of ‘terroirs’ available within the estate enables Bernard Chéreau to offer a comprehensive selection of styles including those bottled ‘sur lie’ where the wine is drawn straight off the lees prior to bottling, resulting in a wine with more weight and complexity.
Grape variety: 100% Muscadet also known as Melon de Bourgogne
Winemaking: The wine is bottled “sur lie”. It has been kept on its lees until March when it is bottled which gives the wine an attractive prickle on the palate and a nice weight.
Note: La Griffe Bernard Chéreau” is their signature wine and represents their guarantee of authenticity. Among all their Muscadet, it is
their most popular and sells the best in French restaurants.
Tasting Notes: Clean tasting with crisp acidity and a bright, fresh minerality.
Serve: Chilled as an aperitif or to accompany seafood and shell fish dishes.
