Domaine Gigou - Boutinot

Meet the Producer

We're on the Loir here, not the Loire, about an hour south of the racing town of Le Mans. Jasnières is a tiny appellation with just 70ha declared, Domaine Gigou have 8 of those. Ludovic is using old vines grown on silex-flecked clay soils to prouduce outstanding and ageworthy Chenin Blanc. The rare Pinot d'Aunis is also worth looking at for a very fine, lip-smacking red for the summer months

A Note on Sustainability

Ludovic's farming and winemaking has been certified organic since 2018 although they have been using those methods for much longer. Domaine Gigou also employ some aspects of biodynamics.
