Fabien Duveau

Fabien is the 8th generation of the family to make wine in Saumur-Champigny, distinguished by its tuffeau bedrock and singular microclimate, as “one of the jewels of the Loire.” Here he holds some 40 parcels of chenin blanc and cabernet franc, a pair of varieties that enthrall him.

Since taking over from his father in 2008, he has converted all of the holdings to organics, a move he regards as his decisive thumbprint on the domaine. His “desire for clean farming and the preservation of the natural heritage” extends to his cultivation of biodiversity in and around the vineyards.

In the cellar, his minimalist approach results in wines that express “the complex nature of the land and the know how of its winemakers.” His intuition, dedication, and innovative perspectives infuse his wines with a freshness and delicacy that mark them as vibrant, eloquent examples of what Saumur- Champigny wines are at heart.
