2016 Domaine Régnier-David La Guichardière Saumur Blanc
Domaine Regnier-David was created in 1962 by Maurice Regnier with the purchase of 2ha of vineyards in Meigné within the Saumur appellation. In the early 1970’s he became a pioneer in the region regarding organic viticulture as he converted from conventional methods to more eco-friendly and, at the time, obscure farming practices. This wine is 100% Chenin Blanc from a single hectare of vines in a lieu dit planted in 2000. The Chenin vineyard was planted from a massal selection of cuttings from Domaine Huet in Vouvray. The soil is a meter of chalky clay over white limestone.
