From the Grower
"Powerful and elegant nose with aromas of strawberry, raspberry, blackberry and spices. The palate is very complex with fine, well-coated tannins and a good length in the mouth."

Domaine de l’R lies on a vast gravel plain on the right bank of the Vienne, in the heart of the Chinon appellation. Having initially learned the profession in Spain, Frédéric Sigonneau returned to Touraine in 2004 and founded the domaine in 2007 on the vestiges of the family domaine in Cravant les Coteaux. Frédéric has always used organic methods to grow his Cabernet Franc vines and chooses to use no herbicides or pesticides. The grapes are harvested by hand and taken to the cellars in crates. The wines are vatted using a gravity system, light pumping over operations are carried out and the yeasts are indigenous.
