The Winemaker: Domaine de la Guilloterie

Just six miles south of the Loire Valley city of Saumur is Saint-Cyr en Bourg, home for six generations of the Duveau family. Since 1835, members of the family have owned and managed Domaine de la Guilloterie. It is now Patrice and Philippe Duveau’s turn to carry on the family legacy and manage the 50 hectare (123 acre) estate. The vineyards and winery are nestled in the appellation of Saumur Champigny.

Situated just south of the Loire River, Saumur Champigny is technically part of the province of Anjou, however the wines are more akin to the adjoining province of Touraine to the east. Chenin Blanc was the traditional grape of the region planted on the calcareous rocky soils known as “TUFFEAU.” Chenin Blanc was prone to chlorosis, a condition in which leaves produce insufficient chlorophyll, so in the 1990’s, Cabernet Franc was widely planted.

Domaine de la Guilloterie vineyards spread over 50 hectares (123 acres) of limestone-clay soils. Subsoil called “tuffeau” makes this area extremely propitious for the cultivation and maturation of Cabernet Franc. Vines here are 10-35 years of age.

The Duveaus farm under Sustainable Agriculture principles. The vineyards are covered with native grasses to promote soil health and reduce vine vigor. Green harvesting and removal of leaves is performed to ensure quality and health of the grapes.
