Producer

Entering the Domain des Gaulleteries is entering a world of order and peace. The bright entryway of the family estate matches the large welcoming smile of vintner Francine Lelais. She, too, is one of those dynamic women who operate vineyards. As such, she brings a sensibility and style to her boutique operation that is envy of other growers throughout the region.

This domain of 35 acres is located on the banks of the Loire River, just above where it joins the more famous Loire River, in the Middle Loire area of Touraine and consists of calcareous-clay hillsides, all facing south or south-east.

Jasnières is planted to Pineau de la Loire, the local name for Chenin Blanc, and is the region's smallest and rarest appellation. The result is an exquisite dry white wine. A critic described one squeezing as follows: “Pale yellow, discreet white flowers and dry honey on the nose, a precise vineyard expression, both ripe and firm, impressively individual.”
