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 six months' ageing on its fine lees after fermentation.
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.
This wine is the perfect companion to seafood.
