In the heat of summer when I’m longing for the ocean I pop open a bottle of Muscadet and envision that I’m standing in the sand with my toes dipping in the glorious salt water. As I was in need of an nearly end of the week rescue, I popped open Château de la Chesnaie Muscadet Sѐvre et Maine 2011. Bernard Chéreau currently manages the 267 acre family owned estate that dates back to the 15th century. Bernard is passionate about his vines and their location; he separates different vines such as 60 year old Muscadet vines or pre-phyloxerra vines that date back to the turn of the last century, into individual parcels in each vineyard. During production he uses only indigenous yeasts and employs extended lees contacts to bring the varietal characteristics to the forefront.
