Carré Blanc Semi sweet wine
Vin de France Blanc (Semi sweet wine)
Carré Blanc Semi sweet wine was born when Louise Chereau Joined the Domaine in 2014. She wanted to produce a wine that is out of the box. In order to be free from a wine making process.
The name of the wine refers to Louise’s Grand Mother’s name: Edmonde Carré.
Grape Variety: 100% Melon de Bourgogne
Terroir: The wine is made from the very young vines from château de chasseloir planted on a schistous soil.
Wine Making Process: We decided to harvest this parcel later than other without the idea of have a too high concentration of sugar. Only few days more than usual Muscadet is enough to increase the residual sugar to 7 gram per liter.
The wine has a yellow color with some gold reflects. The nose reveals aromas of exotic fruits and citrus confit fruits. In mouth the wine is very well balanced with a hint of lemon and honey.

About Chereau Carré Family
Almost 60 years ago, the adventure takes root in the fertile lands of Muscadet, when Bernard Chéreau marries Edmonde Carré. The House Chéreau-Carré was born. It is the beginning of a passionate 3 generation family story.
In the beginning, there was Bernard Chéreau Senior who will take the crazy gamble to buy the Château de Chasseloir estate where a few hundred-years old vines rub shoulders with horses, cattle and cereal fields, with the ambition to create a unique Muscadet, capable of competing with the greatest Grands Crus.
Then, there was Bernard Chéreau Junior, the son, who will give up his medical studies to join the estate, driven by the love of the Muscadet land and eager to make the Muscadet Sèvre et-Maine known, in France and beyond the borders.
Finally, there is Louise, whose strength of character pushes the House to constantly renew itself, exploring new grounds to seduce more and more amateurs of exceptional Muscadet.
