Qui sommes nous ?

About us

To the west of Bourges, after having taken over the cereal farm from their parents, Antoine and Yves Lestourgie decided in 1994 to launch a viticultural challenge with the production of Quincy, the first Controlled Designation of Origin in the Loire Valley region in 1936. 26 years later, the Domaine de Chevilly cultivates 13ha30 including 12ha30 in AOC Quincy (100% Sauvignon Blanc) and 1ha in AOC Reuilly Gris (100% Pinot Gris). Over the years, Florence and Géraldine, respective wives of Antoine and Yves, have come to enrich the family estate with their skills to produce 4 cuvées: 2 AOC Quincy cuvées and 2 AOC Reuilly Gris and Rouge cuvées.

The Unicorn

The Domaine de Chevilly has a long-rooted history in France. On the banks of the Arnon river, the hamlet of Chevilly boasts a Renaissance mansion that housed the Lestourgie family for two centuries. Our ancestors lived there throughout all of the upheavals faced by our country, from the revolution to the creation of the French Republic. The Unicorn, that is depicted on our labels and various communication documents, adopts the graphic originating from the family crest. The latter is a symbol of our identity that depicts two unicorns, a ram and a blackbird are enthroned, is a distinctive sign that has been established for several generations. Today, building on this tradition, we strive to guide our estate towards modernity to the delight of lovers of Quincy and Reuilly.

Our Commitment

Produce while respecting our land

We are committed to an approach that respects the environment. We strive to promote and preserve biodiversity by modifying our practices such as weeding our vines mechanically. Our environmental attitude has further allowed us to enhance the natural areas within our agricultural plots. This environmentally conscious commitment was rewarded by a High Environmental Value (HVE) certification that we received in 2019, which meets the needs of farms engaged in approaches that are highly respectful of biodiversity. This accreditation is based on environmental performance indicators relating to biodiversity, phytosanitary strategy and fertilisation management. The agricultural world has become aware of what is at stake because we are closest to the ecosystems.

Follow us by trusting us to accompany you during the good times!

Quincy
The Golden Unicorn 2022

We harvested grapes full of sugar with freshness. The mild nights of the last few weeks have thus offered beautiful thermal amplitudes, revealing a higher acid and aromatic potential than last year. This brings a nice structure and consistency to the Quincy with a very interesting sugar/acidity balance. On the nose, notes of white-fleshed fruits are essential before leaving the  make way for a beautiful variation of citrus fruits. 

Perfect as an aperitif and also accompanies grilled fish or fish in sauce, seafood, exotic dishes and goat cheeses. Ideal serving temperatures:  between 10  and 12°C. 

Why not give one or more bottles to your loved ones as a gift?

Quincy La Licorne d'Or

Quincy
La Licorne d'Or - The Golden Unicorn
2022

This vintage displays fullness and good concentration. Still a little shy, this Quincy distils flavors of white fruits enhanced by minty notes. The palate has superb expressions. The finish marked by freshness balances the fat. A vintage full of promise!

This wine is perfect as an aperitif and can accompany grilled fish or fish in sauce, seafood, exotic cuisine and goat’s cheese. Don’t forget potato cake, a speciality of Berry.

Ideal serving temperature: between 10 and 12 °C.

Quincy
Cuvée Zoé 2022

Beautifully intense, the scents are fresh, distinctive and very pleasant with floral dominance. Fat and nervousness combine harmoniously in the mouth to end on the length with a nice saline hint.

As with every year, Cuvée Zoé requires time to blossom and will only reveal itself this fall to be perfect for Christmas.

Perfect for starting a meal with tangy salads and continuing with grilled fish or fish in sauce, white meats, exotic dishes, all lightly spiced and hard aged cheeses (Comté aged 18 months)

Ideal serving temperature: between 10 and 12°C.

Quincy Cuvée Zoé
Reuilly Gris La Licorne Rose

This pale grey wine has beautiful golden reflections. The fruit aromas dominate in harmony with the right intensity. Perfect to start a meal with salads, followed by grilled fish or fish in sauce, exotic dishes or accompany desserts such as a strawberry tart or grapefruit crumble.

However, it can further be enjoyed with friends at the end of the day!

Ideal serving temperatures: between 10 and 12 °C.

Reuilly Gris
La Licorne Grise - The Gray Unicorn
2021

Reuilly Rouge
La Licorne Rouge - The Red Unicorn
2022

The sunny summer allowed an optimal ripening of the grapes and a good sanitary condition. This helped refine the tannins. This Reuilly Rouge has aromas of fresh red fruits on the nose enhanced by spicy notes (cloves, etc.). The structure is well melted with the presence of a smoothness in the mouth.

In summary, a gourmet wine!

Reuilly Rouge goes well with aperitifs (Pâté Berrichon), starters (charcuterie, poultry and mushroom pies), dishes (simmered meat, duck breast) and cheeses. But it can also be enjoyed with friends at the end of the day around an aperitif board!

Ideal serving temperature: between 14 and 16°C.
