About the winery: Laurent Charrier and his mother run the certified organic domaine and farm. Laurentâ€™s father was not interested in producing wine so in 1994 Laurent took over the domaine and winery and picked up right where his grandfather had left off. The first thing on his list was to immediately set out and acquire certification for organic farming. The family vineyards are a bit spread out, in addition to their primary vineyard in Saumur, they have smallholdings in Anjou and Coteaux du Layon. The average age of the vines is 25 years with a good part being older than 35 year.
