"Life is about change, sometimes it’s painful, sometimes it’s beautiful, but most of the time it’s both"

Domaine des Sables Verts is an exciting new venture led by the dynamic duo, Caroline Meurée and her husband, Hervé Maligne. With their extensive experience in esteemed estates across France, Caroline and Hervé embarked on this project in 2019, taking the reins of a vast estate spanning 16.5 hectares and encompassing 33 different plots across 5 villages. The average vine age of 40 years speaks to the legacy and maturity of the vineyard.

At the heart of this remarkable estate lie two exceptional single vineyards, the renowned “Poyeux” and “Chaintres” parcels, which were planted as early as the 1950s. Remarkably, Domaine des Sables Verts shares its neighborhood with esteemed wineries such as Clos Rougeard and Thierry Germain, further accentuating the pedigree of their wines.

The name “Sables Verts”, meaning “green sand,” is derived from the unique greenish sand found in the finest vineyards of Saumur-Champigny. This distinctive soil composition, featuring varying amounts of Clay-Limestone and Limestone-Silica, overlays the Mother rock of limestone tuffeaux, which is prevalent throughout the region.

They obtained the Haute Valeur Environnementale (HVE) certification and are actively pursuing full organic certification. Harvesting is done entirely by hand, and fermentation occurs with natural yeasts. The wines are then aged in a combination of tanks and medium-sized oak tonneaux or foudres, depending on the cuvée.

Overall, Domaine des Sables Verts is a project driven by passion, craftsmanship, and a deep respect for the environment. Caroline and Hervé’s dedication to quality, coupled with their sustainable practices, ensures that their wines capture the essence of their remarkable terroir.
