Thibaud Boudignon is transforming prized Chenin Blanc vineyards that had fallen into neglect into the source of some of the Loire’s greatest white wines once again.

While researching the lieux-dits of Savennières, Thibaud discovered a reference to ‘Clos de la Hutte’ – a walled vineyard historically regarded alongside ‘La Roche aux Moines’ and ‘Coulée de Sérrant’ as among the appellation’s finest terroirs. Finding the 1.5ha plot on the site of a former monastery, he used his savings to restore the land and plant it with cuttings from Vouvray’s celebrated Domaine Huet in 2011.

Eschewing the industrial farming methods that have become rife in the region, Thibaud farms 7ha of vines organically and with biodynamic treatments. The domaine is among the last to harvest each year, its grapes picked by hand at optimal maturity and never with botrytis.

Not to be overlooked, Thibaud’s vibrant and gastronomic Rosé de Loire – a blend of 40-year-old Cabernet Franc and Grolleau – offers crunchy red fruit and a lingering, dry finish. Red apple and cherry layered with smoke and crunchy minerals. Fresh and vibrant.
