Run by Paul Fillatreau and his son, Frédéric, this is one of the largest individual estates in Saumur Champigny. There is a good and reliable range of reds in differing styles from the easy drinking Domaine Filliatreau Tradition to the ageworthy Vieilles Vignes. There is also la Grand Vignolle in Turquant and Château Fouquet – a Saumur Rouge – and Imago, a pure Chenin Saumur Blanc which is partly fermented in stainless steel and part in barriques.

Useful information: Phone for appointment or visit la Grande Vignolle which includes a tasting €5.
