Rediscover the taste of Cabernet Franc
Taking over the family's vineyard
Domaine de l'R is situated in the scenic region of Chinon, which is known as the heart of Cabernet Franc country, and runs alongside the picturesque Vienne river. Frédéric Sigonneau took over the family vineyard in 2007, and it has since climbed the ranks to become one of the top producers of Cabernet Franc.
The popularity of the winery's wines is not surprising, given the estate's genuine attention to taste and high standards. The vineyard is managed with a low intervention approach, working in harmony with the environment to produce a red wine with exceptional flavor and freshness. Throughout the winemaking process, there are no compromises, and the wines undergo frequent tastings to ensure the highest quality. The healthy grapes are fermented in concrete tanks, which are porous and allow for a smooth, controlled, and gradual fermentation, resulting in an incredibly smooth and flavorful wine.
