Producer Note
This domain is run by Pascale Lavigne and her husband, Antoine Véron. Based in
Varrains in Saumur-Champigny, they own 42 hectares of vineyard (40 hectares of
Cabernet Franc and two of Chenin Blanc). They cultivate their land sustainably and
have a solid reputation for producing quality wines.
Vineyard
The vines have an average age of 35 years; the older vines have low vigour and
produce wines with concentration, complexity and depth. The Domaine Lavigne
vineyards are sustainably managed and the domain has been proactively involved in
a weather tower project, which has endeavoured to help the entire Saumur
appellation. The aim is to keep the treatments used in the vineyards to a minimum, due
to accurate forecasting and prevention of damaging rains and fogs. Using minimal
chemical treatments and allowing sustainable methods, such as growing grasses and
plants between the vines to naturally control weeds helps the conservation of the soil
and soil water management. The vines are grown in clay and chalk soils.
Winemaking
The grapes were carefully harvested at optimum ripeness and were fully destemmed
prior to vinification. Fermentation took place with wild yeasts in stainless steel tanks, at
controlled temperatures and lasted for 12 to 15 days. The wine was made in an
unoaked style in order to fully express the purity of fruit.
