Château du Coing
|Château du Coing de Saint Fiacre|
|Appellation||Muscadet Sèvre et Maine sur lie|
|Grape variety||Melon B.|
|Terroir||A unique terroir, as the vines are planted at the confluence of two rivers, the Sèvre and the Maine, on a south-facing slope.
Metamorphic bedrock: two-mica and garnet gneiss, covered with shallow soil. Micaschist and amphibolite can also be found.
|Winemaking methods||Kept on lees for 14 months, in underground glass-tiled vats, which are traditional to the Nantais wine region. No stirring of lees.|
|Tasting||The terroir brings finesse and elegance to this wine. White fruits and grapefruit on the nose. Gunflint aromas.
Powerful, mineral-driven palate. Very long finish. Body and roundness, with nice balance.
|Recommended with…||Shellfish, noble sea and river fish, selected cheeses or hors d’oeuvres.
Enjoy chilled at approximately 12°C.
