Domaine de l'R

Domaine de l’R was founded by Frédéric Sigonneau in 2007. He worked for a few years at the famed Domaine Baudry, his neighbor in Cravant near Chinon, then 2 years in Spain on biodynamicly-farmed ungrafted vineyards before coming back to his family estate. He farms his old vines (50 years on average) with a strict organic approach. The style is natural, focusing on the pure cabernet franc fruit with ample concentration due to low yields and attentive viticulture. His wines are full of bright, ripe and vibrant fruit. ‘R’ may come from ‘Reviens-y’ (Come back" to taste the wine again!).

Domaine de l'R Vin de France SO2

Made without any added S02. It is a tribute to SO2 (or the lack of it), to freshness and purity of wines made without it.

Domaine de l'R Chinon Les folies du noyer vert

Named after a 0,5ha family parcel that sits between the facility of Domaine de l'R and Bernard Baudry's. Very nice wine, intense, complex and light at the same time, with the trademark freshness of domaine de l’R
