The Lorieux domaine is located in St. Nicolas de Bourgueil and Cravant either side of the Loire River, the result of the merger of two vineyards. Brothers Alain and Pascal work these lands, with Alain producing Chinon wines and Pascal producing Saint-Nicolas de Bourgueil. Terroir defines the specificity of these Loire Valley wines.
