The Domaine Philippe Gilbert
In the Menetou-Salon appellation, in the center of the Loire Valley, on the sedimentary soils of the Kimmeridgian, the Domaine Philippe Gilbert produces fresh and elegant wines from pinot noir and sauvignon varietals. This artisanal work is based on the principles of biodynamic agriculture.
This tradition dates back to the reign of Louis XV, when François Gilbert took over the vineyards of his father-in-law, and has continued until today with Philippe, who converted the 30 hectares into organic agriculture using biodynamics in the mid-2000s.
