Château du Coing de St. Fiacre

Loire, loire France

Château du Coing is located in the village of Saint Fiacre, in the Sèvre et Maine district of Muscadet. The current owner and winemaker, Véronique Günther-Chéreau, decided in 1990 to return to her family’s estate after achieving a doctorate degree in pharmacy. Véronique’s family had been making wine at Saint Fiacre since 1421, and she grew up on the estate. In 2011, her daughter Aurore joined the family domaine, following her biology and oenology studies in Dijon.

Château du Coing is sourced from Véronique’s 40 hectares of Muscadet vines, which lie at the meeting point of the Sèvre and Maine rivers, where the distinctive gneiss soils give a particularly racy, fragrant style of Muscadet. Unusually for an area dominated by the négociants, Château du Coing is family-run and uses only estate-grown fruit.

Château du Coing’s Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie is fermented with indigenous yeasts and spends the winter on its lees. The bottling of ‘sur Lie’ wines cannot legally start until after the first Thursday in the March following the vintage. The time spent on lees brings complex toasty aromas and adds richness to the finished wine.
