Origin

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.

Producer

Château du Coing is located in the village of Saint Fiacre, in the Sèvre et Maine district of Muscadet. The owner and winemaker is Véronique Günther-Chéreau, whose family has been making wine at Saint Fiacre since 1421. Véronique has over 65 hectares of vines which lie at the meeting point of the Sèvre and Maine rivers. Unusually for négoce-dominated Muscadet, Château du Coing is family run and uses solely estate grown fruit. The style is ‘sur lie’, with at least six months’ ageing on the yeast lees to ensure more body and complexity than the average Muscadet on the market.

Grape Variety

100% Melon the Bourgogne

The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures of 20°C. It qualifies as Muscadet ‘Sur Lie’ due to the 14 months ageing on its fine lees after fermentation.

    Pale lemon in colour, this is a lovely wine with aromas of fresh peach and green apple. The palate is vibrant with concentrated flavours of citrus fruit and white flowers, which are well-balanced with crisp acidity. Highly recommended.
