The origin of Le Logis de la Bouchardière dates back to 1850. The current incumbent is Bruno Sourdais who represents the 6th generation on the domaine. Bruno joined his late father, Serge, in 1990, taking control from the 2008 vintage. Three-quarters of the domaines 55 hectares are located on the coteau above the communes of Cravant, Chinon and Panzoult, although the family only own 16 hectares of these outright. There is no Chenin planted.
Winemaking is very traditional in that everything passes through wood at some stage in its élevage, with the more serious wines receiving between 12 and 15 months in barrel.
