Domaine 7

Bellevigne-en-Layon - Anjou

Abel Benmaamar, long time wine lover, firstly trained as a pharmaceutical engineer made the big change in 2015 and switched his career for a viticulture program. He made his first steps in the vineyards in Beaujolais at Domaine Thillardon, then Domaine Vin in Roussillon and then with Patrick Corbineau in the Loire Valley, where he simply fell in love with the area. 

 After graduating in 2018, his dream became reality when he took over some parts of the vineyards and estate of formerly known as Domaine des Roches Sèches.

Composed of 4 hectares of approximatively 30 years old vines located in the area of Martigné-Briand, all conducted in biological farming with a vast majority of Chenin Blanc, and a little bit of Cabernet Franc.

Why 7 ? Coming from his eternal search of esthetics and beauty in wines, with a perfect angular shape, like an ideal to achieve.
