About Domaine Le Facteur

Le Facteur is the brainchild of Fabien Brutout, working in collaboration with Mathieu Cosme. Fabien began working with Mathieu full-time in 2008, following two years of apprenticeship with Sebastien Brunet in Vouvray. In 2013, after drinking and talking with friends, Fabien had the idea of creating a range of wines that would complement what Mathieu was producing. The goal was to create “vins de copains,” or “wines for friends”–light, refreshing wines focusing on drinkability, a wine for which one glass leads to another and another…

Initially, the Le Facteur cuvées were blended wines from parcels owned by Mathieu. In 2018, Fabien settled in Noizay, acquiring 4ha of vineyards in Vouvray and Touraine. At the same time, he worked with his brother, a farmer who had reclaimed the family property, to plant another two hectares of vines north of Indre-et-Loire. This land had been planted with vines before phylloxera but was abandoned for a hundred years, allowing biodiversity to thrive. On the calcareous bedrock, they planted mostly Chenin Blanc, along with Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pineau d’Aunis, and Gamay.

Fabien has “carte blanche” when it comes to vinification. Healthy grapes are fermented with indigenous yeast and without additives besides a small dose of sulfur. His wines never exceed 50mg/L SO2. Fabien’s philosophy is to guide the wines “without artifice,” to show the best of the terroir.
