Chateau Bouchaudresults 1-1 of 1
Since 1850, the Bouchaud name has been associated with wine production. Pierre-Luc took over the family business in 1987. Since then, the vineyards have grown from 27 to 47 acres. They are located in Saint Fiacre-sur-Maine, population 1200, the most winegrowing municipality in France. The terroir selection comes from land parcels that constantly deliver a great quality award-winning wine. Muscadet Sevre et Maine sur Lie has been an A.O.C. since 1936. Muscadet is a white French wine made at the western end of the Loire Valley, near the city of Nantes in the Pays de la Loire region neighboring the Brittany Region. More Muscadet is produced than any other Loire wine. It is made from the Melon de Bourgogne grape. The name seems to refer to a characteristic of the wine produced by the melon grape varietal : “vin qui a un gout musque” – wine with a musk-like taste. Muscadet wines are often light-bodied and almost always dry with very little, if any residual sugar. Left over carbon dioxide from the bottling process can leave the wines with a slight “prickly” sensation. Muscadet that have been aged sur lie can have very subtle “yeasty” aromas. The acidity keeps the wines light and refreshing. Some examples can have a slight “saltiness” about them. Muscadet has been described by at least one wine critic as the “perfect oyster wine”. The classic food and wine pairings in the Pays Nantais region is of Muscadet with the local seafood-particularly oysters. Other seafood dishes that Muscadet pair well includes lobster, shrimp and mussels. The moderate alcohol levels of Muscadet (always under 12%) allows them to complement many types of dishes without overwhelming them.
