Chéreau Carré "L’Orée du Château la Turmelière" Château Thébaud Muscadet '16
The castle of La Turmelière is an old property situated in Château-Thébaud along the Maine River, and the Chéreau family has farmed it since 2015. Château-Thébaud, a little south of Nantes, is one of ten villages certified in the new classification of Muscadet de Sèvre-et-Maine called Crus Communaux, produced from low-yield vineyards and aged a minimum of 24 months on the fine lees. Château-Thébaud is the smallest of the Muscadet Crus Communaux, and it encompasses an area on both sides of the river Maine up to the confluence with the river Sèvre. Melon B vines are planted on a decomposed granitic subsoil at the edge of the woods in an idyllic setting.
This aged Muscadet is made only in the best years. After hand-harvesting, fermentation occurs in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine ages on the lees for 43 months underground in cement tanks before bottling.
