About Domaine FL
Located immediately southwest of the city Angers, Savennières is a highly respected white wine appellation renowned for making the most delicate dry Chenin Blanc. A tiny appellation with approximately 30 producers, their vineyards occupy the northern bank of the Loire river and produce intensely flavoured whites with discernible minerality and nerve – a gift from the soil full of schist, clay and slate.
One of the top (and relatively younger) estates in the region, Domaine FL was created in 2007 by Philippe Fournier through the marriage of two estates in Anjou-Savennières - the ancient property of Château de Chamboureau on the north side of the Loire and a collection of vineyards from Domaine Jo Pithon.
Joining forces with his son Julien and the enigmatic Burgundian wine consultant, Kyriakos Kynigopoulos, Philippe and the team manage five hectares of vineyards in Loire valley and create some of the most intense, energetic and minerally rich Chenin Blanc that has impressed the world over.
