Domaine des Vaublins
Current owner-winemaker Nicolas is at least the sixth generation of the Deniau family to farm this property. It was only in 1970s that his father Michel extended the vineyard through the purchase of a 16 hectares plot from writer Gilbert Cesbron, and converted the farmland to vineyards. Nicolas followed in his father's footsteps into winemaking, and even went one step further to study viticulture and oenology at the Lycée Agricole and Viticole of Amboise.
Nicolas took over the running of the estate in 2020, where he produces quintessential, well-made reds, whites and Crémant; the Crémant is a particularly memorable blend of Chenin (80%) and Chardonnay (20%) which spends as much as 60 months in the underground tuffeau caves.
