Cheareau Carre Muscadet de Sevre Et Maine Sur Lie, Chateau de Chasseloir

Cheareau Carre 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 Cheareau 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.

Vinification
The wine is aged on its lees, Sur Lie until bottling. No oak ageing.

Viticulture
Environmentally friendly viticulture

Tasting Note
Sur Lie means the wine was matured on its lees until bottling, giving it an attractive prickle on the palate and nice weight. Clean tasting with crisp acidity and a bright, fresh minerality.

Everyday Serving Suggestion
Chateau de Chasseloir Muscadet is excellent as an aperitif and salads.
