DOMAINE DES GAULETTERIES

aoc : COTEAUX DU LOIR, JASNIERES

Entering the Domain des Gaulleteries is entering a world of order and peace. The bright entryway of the family estate matches the large welcoming smile of vintner Francine Lelais. She, too, is one of those dynamic women who operate vineyards. As such, she brings a sensibility and style to her boutique operation that is envy of other growers throughout the region.

This domain of 35 acres is located on the banks of the Loir River, just above where it joins the more famous Loire River, in the Middle Loire area of Touraine and consists of calcareous-clay hillsides, all facing south or south-east.
