More info

Chéreau-Carré is one of the leading Muscadet producers with substantial family owned vineyards in some of the best locations in the region. Their vineyard area totals 267 acres of the highest quality soil, making them one of the largest producers of Muscadet. The wide variety of "terroirs" available within the estate enables Bernard Chéreau to offer a comprehensive selection of styles including those such as this wine bottled "sur lie" where it is drawn straight off the lees prior to bottling, resulting in a wine with more weight and complexity. No oak ageing.

Natalie MacLean wrote of La Griffe "joyously alive with mouth-watering acidity and lovely interplays of lime blossom, tangy orange zest and an apple bite. A consistently great producer of this style of white wine made from the Muscadet grape."
