Domaine de l’R is located on a large gravel plain on the right bank of Vienne in the heart of Chinon. Frédéric Sigonneau is trained in Spain (Dominio de Atauta, Ribera del Duero), and returned to France in 2004, where he founded his property three years later on the remains of the family property in Cravant les Coteaux. In 2015, Frédéric returned to the property’s original 8 hectares, which “just waited to be awakened”. Frédéric has always made use of organic methods. He uses neither herbicides nor pesticides.
