Our estate is located in Limeray, on the hillside of the northern bank of the Loire, near Amboise. We produce Amboise PDO wines here. Since 2015 the 4th generation has been represented by Jean Baptiste Bonnigal and Stéphane Bodet. "We have chosen to value what nature offers us; the terroirs are expressed through fragmented vinification with the grape varieties: Chenin and Malbec.
In order to best express the emotion of our terroirs, we harvest by hand, we sort the grapes on the table and let all the fermentations take place naturally.
During the whole year of work in the vineyard we work the soil, we control our grass to preserve typlhodromes and the microbial life of the soil, we carry out a maximum of manual work and we treat the vine with organic products.
Jean Baptiste and Stéphane met during their studies at the Lycée Viticole de Saint-Emilion. About ten years have passed, an opportunity for both of them to travel abroad and to experience the work of great winegrowers such as François Chidaine.
Without losing sight of each other, they decided to take over Jean Baptiste's family estate together. Since the 2013 vintage, they have been working alongside the previous generation, which has enabled them to create five parcel vintages in 2014 and 2015 (3 for whites and 2 for reds).
For us, the terroir is the best way to convey through the wine the environment in which the vine flourishes. That is why we attach great importance to it.
We are also convinced that the wine is produced in the vineyard before being transformed into nectar. Thus, we are very few interventionists in the cellar in order to allow the wine to express itself in the most natural way and with all the complexity that the word "terroir" induces.
Our key word is "respect": respect for the soil, the grape bunch, the environment, the process that transforms juice into wine, etc.
Our objective is to share these drinks with you to share our passion with you.
