About Manoir de la Tête Rouge

Guillaume Reynouard’s philosophy is resolutely opposed to production–driven and standardized enology. His wines are above all the expression and the reflection of the terroirs in a small village not far from Saumur in the Loire Valley. Mainly chalk tufa and Jurassic limestone, a plateau that is thin-stony. The Mauges–Massif, 40 km west of Le Puy Notre Dame, prevents heavy rainfall, which means that the Cabernet Franc gets a better ripeness and can be harvested in October. Guillaume began his career as a winemaker in 1995 with the purchase of a mansion in need of renovation and 4 hectares of Cabernet Franc. Bio-certified since 1998 and certified biodynamically since 2010, he now has 18 hectares, including a parcel of Pineau d’Aunis, a grape that was forgotten and vilified in the Saumur region, but which is being appreciated more and more over the last couple of years.
