Estate

The House of Chéreau Carré occupies the most privileged position in the Loire-Atlantique department of France. This family-owned property dates back to the 15th century. The vines here are some of the most prized in the region of the Muscadet Sèvre-et-Maine. The property is managed by Bernard Chéreau, whose family origins span back to the eleventh century. Bernard’s passion for Melon de Bourgogne is evident in the quality of his wines.

Wine

The Muscadet appellation is planted with only Melon de Bourgogne, a variety brought to the Nantes area by monks from Burgundy in the 19th century. After a harsh winter in the area, the wine growers had to plant a new variety that would withstand the cold. The variety was obtained by crossing Pinot Blanc with Gouais Blanc.
