2017 Manoir de la Tete Rouge Tete D’Ange Saumur Blanc, Loire Valley, France
Guillaume Reynouard purchased this property in 1995. There are 13 hectares of vines planted on the best clay-limestone soils in the Saumur region. The vines are organically grown, yielding 42hl/ha, and have been eco-certified since 1998. They use no synthetic chemicals, to respect and protect the ecosystems in each of their plots, which includes naturally grown grass between the rows of vines.
Famille Reynouard produces some of the most honest wines in Saumur from their estate grown Cabernet Franc, Pineau d’Aunis and Chenin Blanc. Their selections include Bagatelle Saumur Rouge 2014 (an entry level cuvee), Tete d'Ange, Saumur Blanc 2014, a beautiful Pineau d'Aunis, K sa Tete 2014 and a delicate Saumur Méthode traditionnelle Brut called Tete en l’Air.
