Domaine des Lauriers has belonged to the Kraft family for 7 generations now. Laurent Kraft took over the 3.5-hectare estate in 1992, and now owns 19 hectares, planted on the banks of the Loire River, where Laurent practices sustainable agriculture. 90% of the vines are between 30 and 90 years of age.
Chenin Blanc does especially well there, where the soils are composed of clay and chalk.
The wines go through very slow fermentation – about 2 months, and are aged on their lees in order to extract more aromas.
