More info

The domain is run by Pascale Lavigne and her husband, Antoine Véron. Based in Varrains in Saumur-Champigny, they own 42 hectares of vineyard (40 hectares of Cabernet Franc and two of Chenin Blanc). They cultivate their land sustainably and have a solid reputation for producing quality wines.

The vines have an average age of 35 years; the older vines have low vigour and produce wines with concentration, complexity and depth. The Domaine Lavigne vineyards are sustainably managed and the domain has been proactively involved in a weather tower project, which has endeavoured to help the entire Saumur appellation. The aim is to keep the treatments used in the vineyards to a minimum, due to accurate forecasting and prevention of damaging rains and fogs. Using minimal chemical treatments and allowing sustainable methods, such as growing grasses and plants between the vines to naturally control weeds helps the conservation of the soil and soil water management. The vines are grown in clay and chalk soils.

The grapes were carefully harvested at optimum ripeness and were fully destemmed prior to vinification. Fermentation took place with wild yeasts in stainless steel tanks, at controlled temperatures and lasted for 12 to 15 days. The wine was made in an unoaked style in order to fully express the purity of fruit.
