Rebuilt in the 20th century in schist from the Nantes area, the Château de la Chesnaie has all the features of typical Renaissance style architecture, which was also used for numerous buildings such as the Dobrée Museum in Nantes. The castle and farm were separated and the Chéreau-Carré family bought the farm in the 1960s. It consists of 49 acres of vines aged between 20 and 50 years. The plants grow on a sunny plateau of schist and mica schist soils, which allows the grapes to ripen earlier which is critical in the cool climate of Muscadet. 100% Melon grapes undergo pneumatic press to preserve the quality of the juice. Fermentation is temperature-controlled and the wine ages on the lees. The technique of stirring or “battonage” gives the wine more texture and complexity. Light and refreshing with a nose of apple and citrus, this shows crisp acidity and a bright, fresh minerality that lingers on the finish. Stunning value! 750 ml
