Folie Blanche, Château du Coing
Situated in Saint-Fiacre Sur Maine the vineyards are found on South facing slopes that run down to the Sèvre and Maine river banks. The Château not only has a stunning view but also ancient winemaking roots that date back to 1536.
Made from the unique Folle Blanche (Picpoul), a grape that was overshadowed by Melon de Bourgogne for the production of Muscadet. After years of uprooting, it is now experiencing a well-deserved revival. Light and zesty showing aromas of grapefruit and blossoms really make this mouth-watering wine a must-try.
