Our estate is located in Limeray, on the hillside of the north bank of the Loire, near Amboise. We produce Amboise PDO wines there. Since 2015 the 4th generation is embodied by Jean Baptiste Bonnigal and Stéphane Bodet. "We have chosen to make the most of what nature has to offer us; the terroirs are expressed through vinification by parcel with the Chenin and Malbec grape varieties. In order to convey the emotion of our terroirs to you, we harvest the grapes by hand, we sort them on the table and we let all the fermentation start naturally.During the whole year of work in the vineyard we work the soil, we control our grassing to preserve the typlhodromes and the microbial life of the soils, 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 Saint-Emilion wine school. About ten years went by, the opportunity for both of them to travel abroad and gain experience with great winemakers 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 in 2014 and 2015 five parcel-based cuvées (3 for the whites and 2 for the reds).
For us, the terroir is the best way to retranscribe through the wine the environment in which the vine flourishes. We are also convinced that the wine is produced in the vineyard before being transformed into nectar. We are also convinced that wine is produced in the vineyard before it is transformed into nectar, so we are very little interventionist 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 bunch of grapes, the environment, the process that transforms the juice into wine, etc. Our objective is to share these beverages with you in order to transmit our passion.
