Notes from the Winemaker: Our philosophy is resolutely opposed to production – driven and standardized oenology. Our wines are above all the expression and the reflection of our terroirs which lie 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. He planted 2 HA in 2018. Our activity includes 30 % export sales, that means the United States, Canada, Denmark, the UK , Austria and Japan. We are currently looking especially for distributors and importers on the German Speaking market but also elsewhere.
