Domaine Des Mailloches

Located in Loire · France

Domaine des Mailloches has been operating in Restigne, in the Bourgueil appellation, for more than a hundred years. This family-owned and operated estate has been passed down through eight generations now, all of them dedicated to the sustainable farming of a single grape variety: Cabernet Franc.

The Bourgueil AOC, on the left bank of the Loire river, was first designated in 1937 and has now grown to cover about 3460 hectares, of which Domaine des Mailloches accounts for 44.5 acres. The estate’s vines grow on three different soil types – gravel, sandy clay and clay/limestone – each of which contributes to a collection of subtle, refined wines with a fabulous fruit content.
