“Our passion for Muscadet dates back to the 15th century. Since then, generations have followed one another, but they have never been the same. Bernard Chéreau, son of a winegrower in Monnières, decided to cultivate his own vineyard. Against the tide of an era dominated by bulk distribution in large quantities, he demonstrates by his efforts that high quality production is appreciated by a targeted and exclusive clientele among restaurateurs, wine merchants and private individuals. This success enabled him to acquire the Château du Coing in 1973.
Today, it is his daughter, Véronique Günther-Chéreau, passionate about authenticity, who makes this estate an emblematic property for all lovers of this wine: Muscadet with the flavours of the terroir. Since 2010, Véronique’s daughter, Aurore, a graduate in oenology, has joined us in this adventure “.
Remarkable Muscadet Sèvre et Maine sur Lie Comte de Saint Hubert 2010, with a fine nose where we find notes of white flowers and hazelnut, frank in the mouth, with subtle notes of smoke on the palate, very well-balanced, which combines liveliness and roundness, with good ageing potential.
Taste the Muscadet l’Ancestrale 2013, municipal appellation Monnières Saint Fiacre, which has a lot of body and power, a great aromatic expression marked by very ripe fruit scents, then mineral notes. Also very pleasant is the Muscadet Sèvre-et-Maine sur Lie 2016, with a subtle nose dominated by fresh fruit and lime blossom, a seductive cuvée.
