VDF “Les Landes” 2020 Red - Domaine Bobinet
This exceptional vintage comes from a plot dominated by red clay and flint, minerals conducive to grapes of very strong identity. On the nose concentrated aromas of black fruits, liquorice and spices. It is a silky, dense and complex wine, with explosive generosity.
The Bobinet estate has existed since 2002, when Sébastien Bobinet took over the vines (1.8ha), as well as the cellar from his maternal grandparents. He is the 7th generation of a family of winegrowers from Dampierre-sur-Loire (associated commune of Saumur). The choice of organic cultivation quickly became apparent, as did “natural” winemaking, that is to say without chemical input during the production of the wine, notably under the influence of Olivier Cousin, winemaker in Anjou. Sébastien cultivates 1.5 ha of Cabernet Franc and 0.30 ha of Chenin, harvests the grapes by hand, then vinifies and ages his wines in the tuffeau cellar dug into the Saumur hillside. These wines are then the Amatéus Bobi and Echalier vintages. In 2007, interested in carbonic maceration, he met Bernard Pontonnier who helped him better understand this method of winemaking, the latter having himself learned from Jules Chauvet, Marcel Lapierre, Jean Foillard and many others, when he was a bistro owner in Paris. He was also one of the first to promote natural wine. With grapes from a small private plot, Sébastien and Bernard together produce the Greta Carbo vintage. Then came the time to grow and diversify: Sébastien took over 2 hours of Cabernet Franc in 2010 and decided to vinify grapes from Pineau d'Aunis, Gamay and Côt to experiment with other grape varieties. Rififi in Beaulieu was born! In 2011, he was joined by his partner Emeline Calvez, a trained sommelier. Together they create the Ruben vintage, from the new plots taken over in 2010. Their collaboration gives a new dimension to the estate which continues to grow and assert itself, with a constant concern to stay the course of a sustainable and ethical activity. The Hanami then Piak vintages! then appear. In 2015, both acquired a building which they completely renovated to make it a real storage space, offices and a tasting-sales space.
