Manoir de la Tête Rouge
Situated on famous clay limestone of the hill of Puy Notre Dame in Saumur are the 13ha of vineyards of Manoir de la Tête Rouge. The domaine was established long ago in 1649 and current vigneron Guillaume Reynouard took over the estate in 1995. A few years later, in 1998, he began the transition of turning the vineyards organic, and they have been certified biodynamic since 2010. Today Guilaume makes a wide range of honest wines with the intention of expressing the terroir of Saumur in a most honest and accessible way. This means only indigenous yeasts, no oenologic magic at any time, and only slight sulphuring before bottling.
