About the winery:
Originally from Bordeaux, Thibaud Boudignon is one of the most exciting new producers in the Loire Valley. Thibaud honed his winemaking craft while working at Philippe Charlopin in Gevrey-Chambertin during the early 2000s. He was shortly thereafter hired by Savennieres producer Chateau Soucherie to be their winemaker in the late 2000s where he implemented the organic practice. In 2009, Thibaud began to make wine under his own name from just over 2 hectares of vines in Anjou and approximately 1 hectare of vines in Savennieres where he planted several prime parcels including a parcel which borders Baumard Clos St Yves vineyard (not far from the famous La Roche-aux-Moines vineyard).
