LE P’TIT DOMAINE

Richard Desouche

Richard Desouche, the current vineyard manager of Clos Rougeard, found his vocation as a winemaker by creating his "P'tit Domaine". Richard started the Domaine in 2006, with 0.4ha of Cabernet Franc and 0.6ha of Chenin in the little village of Dampierre Sur Loire. In 2010, Richard managed to increase the Domaine size with 1.4ha of Cabernet Franc in Varrains and Dampierre Sur Loire. Finally, in 2016 he got the opportunity of owning 1.9ha of Cabernet Franc in Champigny. His Domaine is currently 4.5ha of vines.

Richard Desouche runs his Le P'tit Domaine with passion, and his production reflects his respect for the intrinsic values of the terroir and the grape variety. From the beginning (2007), Richard decided to follow the rules of organic agriculture and stop using the herbicide. To follow AB Ecocert's specificity, he stopped using synthetic products in 2009. All his wines have been certified AB since 2013.
