Les Copains d’Abord

Domaine des Sablonnettes

33

Christine and Joel Menard have been making wine in the heart of the Coteaux du Layon AOC for more than thirty years. They produce an outstanding array of wines from Cabernet Franc, Grolleau, Gamay and Chenin Blanc. They practice biodynamic methods in their 13-hectares of vines. Christine and Joel run their domain to very exacting standards and as a result they produce stunning, natural wines—without employing artificial yeasts. The wines from Sablonnettes are not chaptalized or filtered, these wines are vibrantly alive.

Vinification Method: Grapes are harvested by hand and destemmed before maceration, which lasts for five days. The wine rests in tank for six months before it is bottled without sulfites or filtration.
