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 our family have worked to create our signature Saget La Perrière wines - melding the perfect balance, a blend of richness and elegance via the meticulous selection of grapes, expertly crafted by our skilled winemakers for the La Petite Perrière wines. The new designation of Vin de France offered us the opportunity to explore and discover the ideal balance between the fruitiness of those 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. La Petite Perrière Pinot Noir is largely sourced from our own estate vineyards in Touraine (Loire Valley) and a part of the blend is sourced from the South of France through our long term partners.

All Saget La Perriere vineyards are certified HVE3 which encourages vineyards to focus on increasing biodiversity, decreasing the negative environmental impact of their phytosanitary strategy, managing their fertilizer inputs and improving water management.

WINEMAKING & VINTAGE NOTES

2020 was a special year for the vines, with a very sunny spring and an early budburst which gave cause for concern when, in mid-April, the temperatures ventured below the fateful zero degree mark. But thanks to the dedication and commitment of the team, the harvesting period was entered into with reasonable optimism.

In Touraine, in the Mesland area, 2020 is our second certified organic harvest, with bioprotection used on all our musts, an alternative that allows us to dispense with the use of sulphur until racking. For our red varietals, the degrees are higher and suggest that we can expect wines with well-balanced and appetizing profiles.

TASTING NOTES

This pinot noir has a very bright garnet robe with purple shades. A very Burgundian earthiness opens to notes of wild cherry. It’s an outburst of freshness on the palate, a body full of momentum and tension ending in a hint of vanilla.
