Château de Parnay is a jewel of the AOC Saumur Champigny. The property is located on the banks of the Loire, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, on the most famous clay-limestone soils of the appellation. The estate is located next to more than two hectares of troglodytic cellars, including the historic cellar of the illustrious owner Antoine CRISTAL, with its old presses and Bohemian glass vats. A Mecca for Saumur wines since the end of the 19th century, this estate has enjoyed a prestigious clientele beyond our borders. J.P. Morgan, the Tsar of Russia where the court of England were at the time lovers of the wines of Château de Parnay. Edward VII, the King of England, wrote to Antoine CRISTAL "if the alchemists of the Great Work had known your wines, they would not have gone any further in search of drinking gold". Fallen into a sweet oblivion, this castle was taken over by Mathias LEVRON & Régis VINCENOT in 2006 in a desire to give back its letters of nobility to this venerable saumuroise institution. After years of restoring the vineyard, the wines, certified organic since 2013 by ECOCERT, are now regularly awarded medals at national and international wine fairs.
Mathias LEVRON & Régis VINCENOT have in common a love of nature and local products. As the fishing season progresses, discussions are well underway.... At the water's edge, we remake the world and imagine bold projects. Soon, the young winegrower and the entrepreneur set out to find a vineyard to develop together. It was 2002 when the two men first took over Château Princé and then Château de Parnay in 2006. Drawing their strength from the authenticity of their values, they now cultivate 50 hectares of vines with the aim of producing exceptional wines while respecting the environment.
"My approach to wine can be summed up as follows: good grapes for a good wine. We have chosen an organic vine cultivation and a well thought-out tillage that encourages us to look towards the sky, to know each are of our vines and to make a precise selection of our plants... A craftsman at heart, my key words are rigour and mastery of know-how to sublimate the personality of our terroir. In addition to respect for the soil, we also offer the luxury of time: our wines are aged in barrels between 24 and 30 months in the hollow of our troglodytic cellars".
"There were two chairs in my father's cellar and as a kid I went down with him to choose a good bottle of Bordeaux at mealtime... We were sitting and thinking about the appellation we were going to taste. My father, a bon vivant who loves gastronomy, passed on his hedonistic side to me at the table.
