DOMAINE DES MAILLOCHES

Restigne, Bourgueil

Family owned and operated for 8 generations, the Domaine des Mailloches is devoted to sustainable farming of a single grape: Cabernet Franc. Located for over a hundred years in Restigne, in the heart of the Bourgueil appellation, the vines grow on three different soils: sandy clay, gravel, and clay/limestone will each provide subtle, generous and refined wines with lovely fruit content.

Samuel Demont combines traditional methods with modern technology: Mechanical harvest to keep the grapes as cool as possible and vinification in stainless steel tanks are the basics for the elaboration of the "cuvee Domaine" 2018.  The Domaine des Mailloches is spread on 44.5 acres.

It appears that the origin of the Bourgueillois vineyard is linked to the creation of the Abbey of Bourgueil in 990, which gives us the first written traces.

It was at the time of Saint Martin of Tours (IVth century) that the first vines were planted.  The vineyard of Bourgueil, classified AOC by the decree of July 31, 1937, is located west of Tours on the gently sloped right bank of the Loire.  The appellation extends over 7 towns in the Indre-et-Loire district: Restigne, Benais, Ingrandes de Touraine, Saint Patrice, Chouze' sur Loire, La Chappelle sur Loire et Bourgueil covering about 3460 acres. 

Cabernet Franc rules the roost in Bourgueil, an appellation dedicated solely to reds and rosé. These wines are resplendent of raspberry and the grape’s hallmark “pencil shaving” aromas, and can be slightly more tannic than wines from neighboring Chinon.
