The earth

The property stays around 20 hectares, 2/3 in Bourgueil and 1/3 in Saint-Nicolas-de Bourgueil. In order to keep a total control of our vines, we decided not to get bigger.

En savoir plus

The two appellations are 100% implanted in the old river bed of the Loire. Although the domaine is at the hill’s feet of Bourgueil, our 25 different plots of vines favour the diversity of our terroir.

Above the village, sands and gravels; at the hill’s feet, limestone. It is also where we age our wines in great chalk cellars. Our entire vineyard is grown organically, certified by Ecocert.

There is no terroir without the intervation of mankind, we look after our vines as if it were a garden, year after year. We grow grass between vine rows and we plough in the gravel land which is more sensitive to a lack of water.
