Domaine de L'Enchantoir Clos du Petit Chavannes Saumur Puy Notre Dame 2017
Domaine de L'Enchantoir Clos du Petit Chavannes Saumur Puy Notre Dame
Located in Puy Notre Dame village, the last Saumur village before the Anjou Noir region, Domaine de l’Enchantoir and the viticulture shared several centuries of common history. Its 15 hectares of organic wines, situated at the top of the Enchantoir hill surround the estate listed buildings built between the 15th and 19th centuries.
It was not until that 2016 that Jean-Michel and Fabienne fulfilled their dreams of producing their own wine by taking over the leadership of the domain. They are soon joined by their daughter Amandine, who joins forces in their desire to produce quality wines, which reflect the generosity of the village clay limestone terroirs.
They now cultivate Chenin, Cabernet Franc and 1 hectare of Chardonnay that they use for their pet’ nat’. The quality of their Cabernet Franc vintages is well-known by the Saumur Puy Notre Dame appellation, renowned for the complex and
generous character of its red wines. Nowadays, they have multiple projects such as agroforestry, biodynamic conversion, new grapes varieties plantation, market gardening, orchard planting and lodge implementation. They see Domaine de l’Echantoir as an ecosystem in which each activity is dedicated to the terroirs and nature expression of the nature and the terroirs.
