Details

Romorantin Domaine de Veilloux 2014, Biodynamic wine, Loire White, Rare Grape, herbaceous, savoury, tense, delicious. This is one our favourite grapes from the Loire, lesser known and yet now carving out its own reputation for saline, savoury white wines of complexity and style. Romorantin is a natural wine lover's grape variety, not for those of the crispy fruity school of white wines, this is much more interesting. With pate's and terrines, cheeses caked in herbs, or slow cooked meat dishes, corn fed chicken, mushrooms etc, actually this wine is so great, it goes with everything.


Based in Fougères sur Bièvre, Domaine de Veilloux is a family owned estate of 20 hectares of vineyards. The original domaine dates back to the 18th century when they produced all kinds of agricultural products like cereal and livestock as well as vines. Today, Domaine de Veilloux is owned by Michel and Silviane Quenioux with their son Arnaud working in the vineyards. The estate is managed according to natural principles using local grape varieties like Menu Pineau, Sauvignon Blanc, and Gamay. The soils are mainly made of clay but with little differences according to the plot eg clay with sand or clay with flint which make subtle differences in the final wine. Veilloux wines are respectful of their terroir and grape but also natural production and old vines yield wines which take time to mature to their full potential and even the whites are best at 5-10 years of age.
