AOP SAUMUR - AOP ANJOU
At the entrance of "Le Puy-Notre-Dame", 20 km from the city of Saumur, the Domaine de la Paleine covers 35 hectares of vineyards. The limestone hill of Puy-Notre-Dame is crisscrossed by more than a hundred kilometers of underground galleries dug in the tufa, the limestone grain typical stone of the Loire Valley.
The 35 hectares of Domaine La Paleine are mainly planted with Chenin and Cabernet Franc on a clay and limestone soil. The vineyards are grassed to encourage the vines to plunge deep into the tufa.
This unique limestone is a sponge, it absorbs excess water in the winter to return them sparingly when the vines needed. This is where we get the typical wines of Domaine de la Paleine. Structured but soft and fruity wines.
The Domaine de la Paleine began in 2010 conversion to organic viticulture. The vineyards were worked for 3 years to eliminate the use of herbicides. This decision is in the will of preserving our environment and the best expression of our terroir.
