Hanami is their “vin de soif,” a wine to drink in its youth, to enjoy its fruity and fragrant character. Made from several parcels of Cabernet Franc, we vinify this wine with the goal of preserving the aromas of fresh grape juice. The texture is rather light, the aromatics direct and frank. It’s their spring wine!
The Domaine Bobinet is Émeline and Sébastien: two paths that cross, two personalities that come together to share skills and experiences.... the wealth of complementarity.
The domaine was formed in 2002 when Sebastien took over 1.8 hectares of vineyard and cellar from his maternal grandparents who had retired 15 years previously. The decision to work organically was imperative, especially under the influence of Olivier Cousin. Sebastien started off with 1.5 hectares of Cabernet Franc and 0.3 hectare of Chenin Blanc which he vinified in the domaine’s historic cellar, carved in the tuffeau (limestone) of the Coteaux of Saumur. These wines, which are aged in barrels, gave birth to the first cuvées Amateus Bobi and Echalier.
In 2007, his thirst for experimentation led him to meet Bernard Pontonnier “Ponpon” who introduced him to the process of carbonic maceration.
Next came time to expand. In 2010, Sebastien took over a tenancy of 2 hectares of Cabernet Franc. He also wanted to vinify grape varieties other than Cabernet and Chenin and decided to buy some Pineau d’Aunis, Gamay and Cot. Du Rififi a Beaulieu was born!
