Chéreau Carré "Le Sillon des Braudières" Clisson Muscadet '18
Le Sillon des Braudières Clisson has been produced by the Chéreau Carré family since 2015 in the castle of La Turmelière, an old property situated in Château-Thébaud along the Maine River. Le Sillon des Braudière is a single vineyard in the zone of Clisson, part of the Muscadet Crus Communaux designation.
Melon de Bourgogne vines are planted near Sillon de Bretagne, a geologic fault line with Brittany at the point where the terroirs of Clisson and Château Thébaud diverge. Clisson, which lies a little southeast of Nantes, is one of ten villages certified in the classification of Muscadet de Sèvre-et-Maine called Crus Communaux. Clisson was first recognized as a Cru in 2011. The coarse topsoils of sand and pebbles offer excellent drainage and low fertility, while the subsoil is mostly composed of Clisson granite.
After hand-harvest, alcoholic fermentation occurs in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. After fermentation, the wine ages on the lees for 35 months in underground cement tanks before bottling. The wine is produced only in the best years.
