From 3 parcels planted in 1948 with silt and sand topsoils covering softer limestone bedrock.
Notes from Becky Wasserman & Co.:
"In only a few years, Domaine Guiberteau has become one of the most sought after domaines in Saumur. In 1996, Romain Guiberteau decided to take over the management of his family’s vineyards rather than see the leases renewed. The following year, under the mentoring of Clos Rougeard’s Nady Foucault, Romain quickly sold through his 1st vintage. The success convinced him to pursue a qualitative approach to winemaking and to gradually take back his grapes from the cooperative."
