Domaine Guiberteau Saumur Blanc is a monovarietal organic white wine made from Chenin Blanc and produced by Domaine Guiberteau, in the Saumur region of the Loire Valley, in France.
Domaine Guiberteau is a family estate located in the heart of the Loire, 12 kilometres south of Saumur. It consists of 17 hectares of vines that are between 5 and 80 years old and where only the Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc varieties are grown.
In 2003, Romain Guiberteau, who belongs to the fourth generation of the family and is the current manager of Domaine, decided to implement organic agriculture for the cultivation of his vineyards, and in the plots the use of pesticides and herbicides is prohibited.
Domaine Guiberteau Saumur Blanc is a wine from young vines grown on soils composed of clay and limestone. TheChenin Blanc bunches are picked by hand. On arriving at the winery, the grapes are pressed slowly and the must obtained is fermented with their native yeasts. Lastly, the wine is aged in French oak barrels from the Tronçais forests before being bottled.
Domaine Guiberteau is in constant growth and is considered one of the best wineries in the denomination, thanks to the quality of the wines that it produces.
