Domaine Jaulin-Plaisantin was born in 2011 when Sébastien Jaulin and Yves Plaisantin launched their partnership. Sébastien had been a vineyard owner in Chinon for almost two decades but was selling all of his fruit to négociants. Yves is originally from Lyon but had spent some time making wine in New Zealand and in Cote Rotie with Clusel-Roch. Sébastien wine but returned to the Loire in hopes of finding something to call his own.
Sébastien's fifteen hectares of well-situated vineyards in Chinon and an openness to Yves' vision for farming and winemaking solidified their relationship and positioned them to do really interesting work.
