Christiane and Alain Robert founded the domaine in 1973. They are located in Chançay, just east of Vouvray. Their 38 hectares of vineyards, situated around the estate and in the neighboring village of Noizay, are mostly planted with Chenin Blanc, on silex and clay-limestone soil. Chardonnay, Grolleau and Chenin Noir (Pineau d’Aunis) are also cultivated on a few parcels. Their son Cyril, who trained in Champagne, joined them in 2000, followed by his sister Catherine two years later. Catherine brought with her ten years of experience gained in the Loire, including working alongside Jacky Blot at Domaine de la Taille aux Loups. The domaine produces a full range of Vouvrays, sec to demi-sec, moelleux and liquoreux, as well as some méthode traditionnelle Vouvray and Touraine. 

Farming practices: Sustainable. Grass is allowed to grow between the rows and no chemical fertilizer is used. Organic matter is brought in to nourish the parcels, starting at the end of autumn. Pesticides are only used if absolutely necessary, and are in part of the vineyards replaced by biological pest control.
