Domaine De La Renne was established in 1900 by winemaker Guy Lévêque’s grandparents. Guy was originally pursuing a career in other areas but decided to return to the family vineyard in 1981.He steadily increased the estate from 2 hectares to the 66 hectares he cultivates today.
The two wines we have from M. Leveque represent great value, which is the real advantage of Touraine. For the Sauvignon Blanc varietal, the terroir is similar to Sancerre, where Sauvignon Blanc is much more expensive. As a result, Touraine is an appellation which has been enjoying great success in recent years.
His Pinot Noir is a lovely cool climate red, not a million miles away from the Burgundian style, but at a fraction of the price. Again, the combination of a dedicated winemaker and excellent natural conditions cannot be fabricated, and the quality shines through.
