Domaine De L'R

Chinon, France


Frédéric Sigonneau




Grapes Grown:

Cabernet Franc

While Domaine de l'R is a relatively new estate, founded only in 2007, vigeron Frédéric Sigonneau has quickly become recognized for reviving quality into the Chinon AOC. Brought up under the tutelage under family friend and Chinon legend Bernard Baudry, Fred has transformed his family's vineyards into some of the most impressive plots of Cabernet Franc in Chinon. After finishing wine school, Fred went to Rioja where he worked with own-roooted biodynamic vines. Domaine de l'R remained under the radar in the early days until influential French wine writer Olivier Grosjean profiled the wines in 2009. They have been cult worthy examples of Chinon ever sense.
