Domaine de Bablut

The sizeable Domaine Bablut is spread across 55 ha in the Coteaux de l’Aubance at the gates of Angers. Vigneron Christophe Daviau has used organic methods to grow Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chenin Blanc for dry and sweet production since 2010. Despite the organic certificate in his pocket, Christophe takes inspiration from natural activist Nicolas Joly and as a result adopts many biodynamic practices such as planting hedgerows of redcurrant, wild rose and dogwood to preserve the local vineyard fauna.
