100% Melon de Bourgogne / Organic
The vineyard has an unusual terroir because its subsoil is composed of a volcanic rock: gabbro, covered with a layer of clay 40cm. The particularity of this soil gives these wines a minerality and a characteristic lemony note. This cuvee comes in three different labels: two of each in a case of 6, which symbolise terroir, wine and man.

The present estate date back from the 15th Century but vines were cultivated on this plot since Roman times. The Cherreau-Carré family purchased the Château in 1973 and Véronique Gűnther-Cherreau, the eldest daughter, took over in 1990, she is passionate about her region and its wines. Located at the confluence of the rivers Maine and Sèvre, at the foothills of Massif Armoricain, with a southern exposure, the soils are mainly composed of different types of schists. The vineyard covers 40 ha, including 25 ha planted with vines that are over 80 years old. The yields are kept down to 50 hl/ha and “lutte raisonnée” is the preferred method.
