Chéreau Carré Les Terrasses de la Cantrie Monnières Saint-Fiacre Muscadet de Sèvre-et-Maine 2015

The Cantrie vineyard is a very special site, set along the Sèvre river. Its 11 hectares are planted on a terraced hillside, the only vineyard in the region with a steep enough grade to do so. Of those eleven hectares, two are on a top-quality schist soil and are designated as part of the Cru “Monnières Saint-Fiacre”, recognizing it as one of the best terroirs in the area, which is in the process of being recognized as a Cru Communaux by the appellation.
