This load of new wines just seems to go on and on doesn't it? Well this is something many of you have asked for and we have finally managed to find one of sufficient quality. Muscadet you beautiful grape!
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 135 hectares 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.
Chéreau Carré 'La Griffe', Muscadet Sèvre et Maine sur Lie 2017 @ £10.95 - Buy it here!
A pure wine delivering delicate citrus fruit and floral aromas. Refreshing, with crisp acidity and a bright minerality on the palate, through to a lemony hint on the finish. "Sur Lie" means the wine was matured on its lees, imparting an attractive "spritz" and a nice weight on the palate.
This is going to be the wine of the summer I can feel it now. Come and give it a go before the warmth arrives. Cheers!
