About Domaine du Chapitre

Domaine du Chapitre is managed by siblings Maryline and François Desloges. The vineyard is based in Saint Romain sur Cher (Loir and Cher) in the Loire Valley and was founded at the beginning of the XIX century by their ancestors. At that period of time, farmers used to cultivate cereals, raise cattle, and plant vines for local consumption.

François made his first “vendange” in 1982 and Maryline joined the vineyard a couple of years later. As 5th-generation winemakers, their aim is to produce high-quality wines reflecting the specific terroir of Touraine and Touraine Chenonceaux. The team is also comprised of François’s son Valentin, a 6th generation winemaker. Valentin is in charge of the vineyard and the winemaking with his father. He returned to the domaine after working for different renowned winemakers: Vincent Sipp in Alsace, Todeschini Family at Château Mangot in Saint-Émilion, Thierry et Paul Pillot in Chassagne-Montrachet, and Raphaël Coche at Coche-Dury in Meursault.

Domaine du Chapitre manages 28 hectares of vines (15 to 45-year-old vines) in two AOP: Touraine and Touraine Chenonceaux, both on the bank of the Cher river. The terroir is made of different soil types amongst the three towns where the vineyards are planted (Saint Romain sur Cher, Saint Aignan, et Noyers sur Cher). Sand with flint is dominant on the bank side of the Cher river while clay and limestone are found further North. The vineyards are at an altitude of 120m with an oceanic climate of fresh, cooling winds coming from the west.

The vineyard has started organic certification. For example, they are using soft tillage, letting more land go uncultivated, and have increased biodiversity with beehives throughout the vineyard. The grapes are picked and sorted at the winery in Saint Romain sur Cher. The Sauvignon Blanc grapes are cold-soaked before pressing. A pneumatic pressing machine is used for all the wines. The wines are lightly filtered and sulfur is added in low quantities before bottling.
