For Véronique Günther Chéreau, being a winemaker is a family affair. Each new generation is driven by the same ambition: transforming what nature gives them into an exceptional Muscadet!
Sèvre et Maine is acknowledged to be the best district in which to grow Muscadet (Melon de Bourgogne). The vineyard of Château du Coing is located in the village of Saint Fiacre sur Maine, just at the confluence of the rivers Sèvre and Maine. The soil is composed of schists and the vineyards are south-facing with slopes of 14%. The vines here are on average 65 years old, giving depth and richness to the wines.
The wine was fermented and aged in stainless steel. It qualifies as Muscadet 'Sur Lie' due to the six months' ageing on its fine lees after fermentation.
Pale yellow in colour, this wine has aromas of white peach, green apples and floral notes. On the palate, the pure citrus fruit is bolstered by body, richness and structure from the lees ageing. Crisp and vibrant, it is the perfect companion to seafood.
