Guiberteau 2022 Releases
One of the Loire's most exciting producers, last year we were thrilled to welcome Domaine Guiberteau onto our books. As some background for those less familiar with this rising star, the estate goes back roughly 100 years but it was only recently that third-generation Romain took the vineyards back under family control in 1996. With 17ha of vineyards predominantly situated on the hill of Brézé & vines reaching up to 80 years old, Romain works with arguably the Loire's finest terroirs, which he shares with other pioneering producers such as Clos Rougeard. The Foucaults were in fact more than just neighbours - Nady took personal interest in Domaine Guiberteau, becoming Romain's tutor and driving the estate towards organic conversion (certifed in 2007). From there Guiberteau has continued to rise up the ranks and easily numbers among Saumur's top five producers, with wines that bear the stamp of Romain's tutelage under Clos Rougeard but at eye-wateringly attractive prices.
