Chéreau Carré, Muscadet de Sèvre-et-Maine ‘Le Clos du Chateau l’Oiseliniere’ 2005

De Maison Selections, Chapel Hill NC.

From eighty year old vines in a sheltered, riverside site of eroded orthogneiss and schist.  Thirty months on the lees.

Yellow gold.   Secondary notes of toasted barley and ocean-front caramel to the lush yellow ripeness of ’05.  Hawthorne and iron-ore with a pronounced grip and saltiness.   Textural for Muscadet; ashes to ashes at the end.  Now – 2020+.
