Family estate for 4 generations.

The farm is located in the Loire Valley in the Touraine and Touraine Chenonceaux appellation area.

The vineyard extends over two towns on the right bank of the Cher, Chatillon sur cher and Noyers sur cher.

It now has 40 Ha distributed as follows:

Sauvignon blanc: 30 Ha, Chardonnay: 2Ha, Chenin: 0.5Ha, Malbec: 1.5ha, Gamay: 3Ha,Cabernet franc: 2Ha, Cabernet sauvignon: 0.5 Ha,Pineau d’aunis: 0.5 Ha

The vineyard is located on sandy soils mixed with flint; the subsoil is clay-limestone with a lot of flint.

The vineyard is managed in a reasoned manner; the soils are worked mechanically (no more chemical weedkillers for 10 years).

Thanks to winemaking techniques, we offer light wines based on fruit and finesse which lets the qualities of our very particular terroir express themselves.
