Description

This domain is situated on the right bank of the Cher facing the charming chateau of Saint Aignan. In 1980, Guy Leveque and his wife Claudie took up his grandfather’s vineyard which was planted in 1900. It was only 9 acres and they made the wine in the family house cellar. Guy bought several vineyards in the following years. In 2009 he owned 150 acres. That is when his daughter Katia and his sons in law Laurent and Patrice joined the family business. In 2012, they owned 190 acres of varied soils where they produced a great variety of wines, red and white, Rosé, sparkling and even a sweet wine with late picking.

For this white wine, the grapes are picked very early in the morning and quickly carried to stainless steel vats. This special cuvée is issued from selected terroirs of the domain and has received several awards.
