Thibaud Boudignon is originally from Bordeaux, and honed his winemaking craft while working at Philipe Charlopin in Gevrey-Chambertin during the early 2000s. He is a young, talented and rising star winemaker in the Loire Valley. He was the winemaker at Château Soucherie where they allowed him to produce a small amount of wine under his own label on the side, but now fully in charge on his own domain, you can now see his style becoming more impressive and refined year after year. 

Just when you think you’ve experienced the best a region has to offer, someone like Thibaud comes along and rocks your world. These wines that speak so clearly of their place of origin and there is arguably no greater dry Chenin Blanc being made in the Loire Valley today.

Thibaud harvests his parcels using 30 harvesters in only 4 days! Harvesting is very fast as Thibaud harvests later than other growers to ensure optimal ripeness of the fruit before picking.

Thibaud is unquestionably one of the most exciting figures in wine today.
