It is in Rabelaisian soil that Odile and Jean-Max Manceau have been producing their wines since 2001, after 28 years' experience in another renowned estate in Chinon. Lovers of this land, they are keen to share their passion for the profession through their wines and the welcome of the public at the Domaine. Their vines are cultivated according to the principles of organic agriculture and they have been biodynamic since 2012.
Taking over a vineyard remains a passion when you have more than 35 years of experience. Chinon is a wonderful appellation rich in history with a grape variety more than a thousand years old. This translates into a 17-hectare estate in Chinon blanc et rouge AOC certified organic since 2014, with wines that are faithful to where they were born. Indeed, we practice a geological traceability of our wines, and our lands are cultivated in biodynamics, which brings a beautiful diversity in styles. Our different wines can be adapted for all seasons, all cuisines, and some of them have the capacity to age for many years.
Born at the foot of a vine stock, I have always wanted to be in harmony with nature, what could be more sincere than to want to make authentic wines that fascinate us every day. After 35 vinifications, the enthusiasm is still as strong as ever, with a real pleasure to share our knowledge and our wines. Our know-how offers wines of high expression with a particular signature, in the image of the winegrower, concerned with respect for the environment and tradition.
Having had the chance to obtain numerous awards, encourages us to constantly innovate and diversify our offer, which is why we have decided for 2 years to vinify part of our white wines in terra cotta Amphora, ovoid shape, in order to go further in the purity, minerality and finesse of the aromas and complexity of our wines. Our willingness to share our know-how and knowledge has led us to a personalized welcome at the Domaine by organizing tastings related to gastronomy but also a discovery of the vineyard in a horse-drawn carriage, and a partnership with a restaurant owner and boatman from Chinon. Wine tourism is for me a good way to reconcile my passion for wine and horses.
