Domaine Gouron, a family-owned estate, holds outstanding terroirs around the village of Cravant-les-Coteaux in the heart of Chinon. Brothers Laurent and Stéphane Gouron carry on the work of their father and grandfather, René, who founded the estate in 1947 with only four hectares of vines and sold direct to Paris bistros. Today, the estate consists of 28 hectares of vineyards which are evenly divided between the hillsides and the plateau. Yellow tuffeau (soft clay-limestone characteristic of the area), along with shelly debris, prevails on the slopes, while the plateau is mainly sandy clay with flint and gravel. These distinct soil types allow for the creation of different cuvées that highlight the expression of each terroir.
