Chateau de Chasseloir Muscadet Sevre et Maine Sur Lie 2015

External Review by Great Wines Direct:

The Chateau de Chasseloir is situated in the St. Fiacre district (the leading Muscadet growing area) and is one of the oldest properties of the area. The storeroom of Chasseloir is unique among wineries with its old carved beams, its Rabelaisian figures, its stained glass windows which tell the story of the vine and its wine and finally its old winemakers' tools. It is a real museum! There are more than 49 acres of vineyards planted on the stony hillsides of the Estate. Some of the vines are more than 100 years old. The wines are bottled “sur lie”. Grapes : 100% Muscadet Region : France / Loire / Muscadet Sevre et Maine sur Lie AOC Maker : Bernard Chereau Notes : A clean, crisp, stylish and well balanced wine with a persistent finish. “Sur Lie” means the wine was matured on its lees until bottling, giving it an attractive “prickle” on the palate and nice weight. Clean tasting with crisp acidity and a bright, fresh minerality. Serve : Chilled as an aperitif or with oysters, seafood and shellfish. ABV : 12%

The Muscadet region extends mainly South East of Nantes near the mouth of the river Loire. The most significant and varied appellation by far, representing four in every five bottles is Muscadet de Sèvre et Maine, named after two small rivers which flow through, this the most monocultural part of the Pays Nantais, South and East of the City of Nantes. Indeed more Muscadet de Sèvre et Maine is produced every year than any other Loire appellation. Chéreau-Carré is one of the leading Muscadet producers with substantial family owned vineyards in some of the best locations in the region. Their vineyard area totals 267 acres of the highest quality soil, making them one of the largest producers of Muscadet.
