The opinion of the sommelier

« This month I would like you to discover the Domaine de la Charmoise. Its wines are outstanding in terms of price quality ratio. The Ma- rionnets, the owners of this winery, are passionate about their work and this is shown in what they produce! This Cuvee Gourmande will probably enhance the St Pierre that the Chef Philippe Vétélé proposes this month. »


Thanks to its location in the east end of the Touraine, this winery benefits from a continental climate, favourable to sauvignon and gamay. Spring frosts are quite rare and temperatures help these two grape varieties to come to maturity before the harvest. Grapevines grow on “perruches” (flinty clay and gravels) soil. It is a dense and compact soil that produces wine for laying down.

lecepage Grape variety

The sauvignon has a strong presence in the Vallée de la Loire, and is highly demanded for its structure, its freshness and its wide range of aromas. Very sensible to diseases (especially powdery mildew), it harmed its culture for a long time. However, the progress of vine-growing permitted to develop its plantation since the 60’s.

lemillesime Vintage

Winter was mild and too dry. However, April brought more that 120mm of rain to vineyards, along with nice temperatures at the start of the vegetative cycle. Summer was more stable and allowed a good ripening of grapes. Wines born from sauvignon are sharp with a high aromatic freshness.

lerecoltant Winemaker

The Marionnet family arrived at Soings, in the east part of Touraine, 30 km to the south of Blois, during the 50s’. What’s the peculiarity of this winery? The Marionnets own the oldest grapevine of France, dated around 1850, before the phylloxéra crisis.
