Cited regularly with star ratings in the Guide Hachette, the small family Domaine du Pre Semele, based in the charming wine village of Maimbray in the heart of the Loire Valley, has been handed down from father to son for three generations. Claude and Remy Raimbault took over the reins in 1988 and were subsequently joined by their nephew Julien in 2001 when they created the new Domain name of Pre Semele. Remy is now approaching retirement age, so Clement his son is gradually becoming more involved in the viticulture and vinification. The vineyards are planted on Kimmeridgian (80%), limestone and clay soils. Over time, the family has identified 45 distinct parcels within the property, 25 acres are Sauvignon Blanc and 10 acres are Pinot Noir, all of which are farmed using lutte raisonee methods.
