Domaine du Pre Semele is a small, family owned estate located in the heart of the Loire Valley in the village of Maimbray, France. Owned by the Raimbault family, the winery estate is managed by the third generation, brothers Julien (vigneron) and Clement (winemaker). Their father, Remy remains involved in the business and together, they manage the 44 acre property. The vineyards are planted on Kimmeridgian (80%), limestone and clay soils and planted with Sauvignon Blanc (75%) and Pinot Noir. Over time, the family has identified 45 distinct parcels within the property, all of which are farmed using lutte raisonee methods. Cited regularly with star ratings in the Guide Hachette, the small family Domaine du Pre Semele, based in the charming wine village of Maimbray in the heart of the Loire Valley, has been handed down from father to son for 3 generations. Claude & Remy Raimbault took over the reins in 1988 and were subsequently joined by their nephew Julien in 2001 when they created the new Domain name of Pre Semele. Remy is now approaching retirement age, so Clement his son is gradually becoming more involved in the viticulture and vinification. Total area exploited is 14 hectares or some 35 acres, of which 10 hectares (25 acres) is Sauvignon Blanc and 4 hectares (10 acres) is Pinot Noir.

Tasting notes
A pale straw color with delicate green highlights, this lovely white offers pretty floral aromas and notes of gooseberries, grapefruit paired with crisp minerality.

Technical notes
The Sauvignon Blanc grapes were gently pressed, cold settled and fermented in stainless steel and enamel tanks. The wine aged in tank sur lie with battonage for 5-6 months before bottling.
