Producer profile

No Control

Domaine Sebastien Bobinet was established in 2002 when Sebastien Bobinet took over 1.8 hectares of vineyard and cellar from his maternal grandparents, who had retired 15 years earlier. Influenced by Olivier Cousin, Sebastien was committed to organic farming from the outset. He began with 1.5 hectares of Cabernet Franc and 0.3 hectares of Chenin Blanc, vinifying them in the historic tuffeau (limestone) cellar in the Coteaux of Saumur. The aging of these wines in barrels led to the creation of the first cuvées, Amateus Bobi and Echalier.

Sebastien's desire to experiment led him to Bernard Pontonnier, known as "Ponpon," in 2007. Ponpon introduced him to carbonic maceration, further expanding his winemaking repertoire. In 2010, Sebastien expanded the vineyard, acquiring a tenancy of 2 hectares of Cabernet Franc. Eager to explore beyond Cabernet and Chenin, he also started working with Pineau d'Aunis, Gamay, and Cot grapes, creating another notable cuvée, Du Rififi a Beaulieu.
