Les Vignes Herbels, Laurent Herbel & Nadège Lelandais, Anjou
Les Vignes Herbel is the project of Laurent Herbel and Nadège Lelandais who started in 2005 and now have a three-hectare parcel of vines at Rochefort-sur-Loire called La Pointe on a terroir of purple schist and clay.
This includes 1.4 ha of Chenin Blanc planted in 1920 and 1.6 ha of Cabernet (70% Franc and 30% Sauvignon) planted in 1974.
They farm organically and biodynamically.
