Clos des Cordeliers and its 22 hectare vineyard are located in the heart of the PDO Saumur-Champigny. Here, wine is above all a family affair. For 4 generations, the RATRON family has been involved in the desire to promote its emblematic grape variety, Cabernet Franc, and every day, Marie-Françoise RATRON is committed to enhancing the expression of this terroir through sustainable vineyard management. The diversity of the soil, composed of tuffeau or Champigny stone, allows the production of the estate's two flagship vintages, Prestige and Tradition, with distinct aromatic qualities and richness.

Our story

A historic vineyard recognized in Saumur-Champigny, Clos des Cordeliers was created by Franciscan monks and then alienated by the French State during the Revolution. Passionate about this history, the RATRON family bought this estate in 1932. Four generations later, it is now Marie-Françoise who is committed to preserving the heritage entrusted to her. "We are invested daily in culture, production, research and the desire to make you taste a real Saumur-Champigny". Assiduity, know-how and love of the profession allow Marie-Françoise RATRON to perpetuate and modernize this reputation.

Other little stories

We strive to offer typical Saumur-Champigny from Cabernet Franc on the Saumur tufa. Our leitmotiv: Authenticity, Passion and Sharing. What better way to do this than to exchange and share with you the passion of our profession during our hikes organized in season. At Les RATRON, we are dedicated to enhancing the richness naturally offered by our terroir. The harvest is carried out exclusively by hand by grape pickers, all from the region, we use only indigenous yeasts for the vinification of our vintages and we pay particular attention to careful soil cultivation. It is in 2009, the year our daughter was born, that the estate innovated and found the way to produce a Crémant de Loire Blanc de noir 100% Cabernet Franc. A grape juice, the Potion d'Anaïs, also bears his first name. Recently, we discovered bottles of Prestige 1976 at the bottom of private cellars, reflecting the ageing potential of this historic estate.
