Name of winemaker in photo

Domaine Jaulin-Plaisantin was formed in 2011 when Sébastien Jaulin and Yves Plaisantin launched a new partnership. Sébastien had been a vineyard owner for almost two decades but was selling all of his fruit to négociants. Yves spent some time in the US making wine but returned to the Loire in hopes establishing a domaine. 

Sébastien's 15 ha of well situated vineyards in Chinon and an openness to Yves' vision for farming and winemaking solidified the partnership. They are currently in the process of going organic and their first certified vintage for "Les Hauts & Les Bas" will be 2015.
