Thibaud Boudignon farms small parcels of Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc with his hands, heart and inspiration. As part of a new generation of Loire vignerons, Thibaud has committed himself to crafting honest wines that embody the spirit of the region. One could say that Boudignon drinks, breathes and lives wine, as he has renovated, re-built and lives above his centuries old cellar on the outskirts of Savennieres. This ardent devotion culminates in a select range of wines that speak to both the heart and the mind; wines that epitomize both precision and soul.
Thibaud Boudignon Anjou Blanc 2015
With a tight core of saline terroir enveloped within ripe medium bodied fruit, this chenin blanc delivers a focused example of Thibaud’s style of ripe fruit matched with elegance and precision.
Thibaud Boudignon “à Francois(e)” Anjou Blanc 2015
Cut like a diamond with clean lines, and explosive fruit. Long detailed finish that fans out with a touch of creaminess. Still evolving and reward the one who has patience.
Thibaud Boudignon “Les Fougerais” Savennières 2015
The most fulsome and opulent of Thibaud’s wines (and especially so in a warmer vintage such as 2015), however not at the expense of tension and focus. A truly phenomenal Savennières.
Thibaud Boudignon “Clos de la Hutte” Savennières 2015
The newest addition to Thibaud’s range of Chenin Blanc comes from a half hectare plot within the Clos de la Hutte (1.5ha) lieu-dit. The vines are young, and the volumes miniscule, with only 1000 bottles released.
Thibaud Boudignon Rosé de Loire 2016
Bright pink in the glass, the Cabernet Franc crafted here is a serious style of rosé that will have a place at the table and age short term. The crunchy red fruits are explosive with a mid-palate of tension that cascades to a dry finish.
