Tasting notes - 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.

Crisp and salty freshness enlivened by a slight spritz with
good weight and a dry minerality complemented by
stone fruit flavours.


Producer Note
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.


Vineyard
The vineyard is located in Saint-Fiacre-sur-Maine, within the appellation of Muscadet
Sèvre et Maine. The vines are south facing and range from 20 to 30 years in age.
They are planted in deep schistous soil which allows the roots to penetrate the soil for
several metres. The vines are carefully tended throughout the year. The harvest takes
place in September, when the grapes have reached optimal maturity.


Winemaking
Fermentation took place at controlled temperatures in stainless steel to preserve the
varietal characteristics of the Melon-de-Bourgogne variety. The wine was then aged
on its lees, 'Sur Lie', for six months with regular "bâtonnage" or lees stirring until
bottling. The wine was made in an unoaked style to retain the fresh style and purity
of fruit.


Tasting Note
A pure wine delivering delicate citrus fruit and floral aromas with notes of green
apples. 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.
