Originally from Pouilly-sur-Loire, Maison Saget la Perrière offers a complete collection of Loire varietals and wines by bringing together a unique range of around thirty Loire Valley wine appellations. Jean-Louis Saget, driven by his contemporary vision of the world of wine, was able to grow the small initial structure to install the Saget La Perrière house a few decades later.

Tasting and Food-pairing
Taste and nose Rich and powerful Sancerre. The nose explodes with aromas of ripe fruit. On the palate, the attack is full-bodied and suave releasing delicate aromas of very ripe fruits, exotic fruits (mango). Fine and elegant, this cuvée ends with a lingering saline finish that brings all the hopes of a nice aging.
Food pairing It is a rather gourmet wine that goes equally well with fish in sauce (Hollandaise sauce) as well as white meats with a cream sauce. It can also accompany seafood platters such as coquilles, lobster, etc.
Vintage 2015
Grape Variety Sauvignon Blanc
Soils/exposition Tuffeau chalk. One of the most legendary of the appellation located in the town of Bué.
Vinification Manual harvest. Pressing of the whole bunch to obtain a juice with substance and body. The must is vinified partly in barrels and in stainless steel vats. Aging lasts for 10 months. It is mainly done in vats but a small part is aged in barrels in order to subtly bring complexity and fat to the wine without distorting the expression of the terroir.
Age of the vines average age of the vines 30 years
