Background

In 1790, the Saget family embarked upon a long history dedicated to vines and wine, firmly placing Saget among just a handful of estates that can enjoy their third successive century of business. Generations of the Saget family have worked to create their signature Saget La Perrière wines - melding the perfect balance, a blend of richness and elegance via the meticulous selection of grapes, expertly crafted by their skilled winemakers for the La Petite Perrière wines. The new designation of Vin de France offered them the opportunity to explore and discover the ideal balance between the fruitiness of the varieties grown in the south and their acidity when produced in the northern region (Loire) and thus La Petite Perrière wines were created. The Vin de France designation is utilized for the entire La Petite Perrière range. Through our extensive experience with Sauvignon Blanc, the master of the Loire Valley, we have been able to explore and express this grape variety's many facets and full potential. Our skilled winemakers have gone to great lengths to secure the best Sauvignon Blanc in France in order to expertly craft a wine with perfect balance, a blend of richness and elegance. La Petite Perrière Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from our own estate vineyards in the Loire and our long-term partners in the South of France.

TERROIR & VINTAGE NOTES

The 43 hectares of La Perrière are heavily dominated by Sauvignon Blanc, planted over roughly 38 hectares. All the vineyards are sustainably managed using soil tillage and grass cover. This region and its rolling hills provide great exposure, which helps the grapes attain exceptional maturity.

Winemaking & Aging

Great care and attention are taken at harvest time; half of the Sauvignon Blanc grapes are picked by hand. A first sorting, carried out in the vineyard, ensures that only the grapes that have reached the desired maturity level are retained. Grapes are then taken to the cellars to undergo a short, cold pre-fermentation maceration before being pressed and fermented. aging on fine lees lasts for approximately 3-4 months before bottling in early spring.

Tasting Notes

Clear, pale yellow appearance. The typical Sauvignon nose is dominated by floral notes with hints of boxwood as well as fruit in the form of peach and mango aromas. The palate is lively, rich, and fruit-forward, with a lingering lime finish.
