In 1996 Maison Paul Godinat acquired two vineyards in the eastern extremity of the Val de Loire:


15 hectares at Quincy where the vineyard extends along the banks of the Cher several kilometers west of the city of Bourges. The sandy and gravel terrains yield white wines solely from the Sauvignon grape, which are characterised by the freshness and subtlety of their aromas.
20 hectares at Menetou - Salon (30% Pinot Noir and 70% Sauvignon) where the vineyard, at 300m altitude, benefits from a continental climate, while having westerly winds and influence from the Atlantic. The soil consists of dry chalk and clay. The white wines are fresh and full-bodied and the reds have a good nose.
