The Lorieux Domaine, which totals 20 hectares, is located in St. Nicolas de Bourgueil and Cravant on either side of the Loire River, the result of the merger of two vineyards. Brothers Alain and Pascal work these lands, with Alain producing the wines of Chinon and Pascal producing the wines of Saint-Nicolas de Bourgueil.
