Domaine des Closiers, a rising star in the Saumur Champigny appellation
Located in Parnay, in the heart of the Saumur Champigny appellation, the Domaine des Closiers is a real rising star in the Saumur Champigny appellation. The Domaine was taken over by Anatole de la Brosse in 2019 with the ambition of becoming the reference. The "closiers" were the winegrowers who worked in the vineyards and who lived in the troglodyte dwellings at the bottom of the hill. The Domaine des Closiers extends over 15 hectares on clay-limestone soil with vines of 35 years of average age and extends over 15 hectares with 95% of the vineyard planted in Cabernet Franc, allowing the production of rich and fine wines.
Reconciling great wine and respect for the environment
The ecological commitment of managers Anatole de la Brosse and Pierre Derouin is illustrated by obtaining the High Environmental Value (HVE 3) label in 2017, which rewards the attention paid to the development of biodiversity on the site. In a desire to embody these values more strongly, the Domaine des Closiers began its conversion to organic farming in 2020 under the leadership of Michel Chevré, recognized for his knowledge of biodynamics, and obtained Ecocert certification in 2023. The work of the vines is thus done in compliance with the specifications of organic wines without any use of chemicals (with the exception of very small quantities of copper and sulphur) in order to let the soils and the vine fully express themselves. The winegrowers therefore do not hesitate to use ecological cultural practices such as grass cover, tillage and leaf stripping. Yields are also kept to a minimum in order to extract the best from the different terroirs.
