Family-run, organically farmed 13-hectare AOP Chinon estate in the Loire-Vienne confluence. Domaine des Galuches takes its name from the local stone on which our vines have found strength and prosperity. We work as a family, with my wife and son. Long convinced of the legitimacy of organic farming, we fly the BIO and HVE (high environmental value) colours. With our feet in the sand of the Loire, we notice a subsoil of gravel and Galuches stone. On the warmer, sandy soils of our Chinons, we’ll discover more character and aromas. In this approach to understanding nature, the product of the vine alone is enough for us. We vinify our wines without added yeast. Cold maceration begins to extract as much of the fruit as possible, followed by a controlled rise in temperature for a fermentation lasting seven to ten days. The use of sulphur in very small quantities allows us to protect the wine for better ageing.
