"LA PETITE PERRIÈRE" ROSÉ
Saget La Perrière
Vin de France
100% Pinot Noir
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 Petite 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 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 and thus the sourcing for our la Petite Perrière Rosé is the same.
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
With inspiration drawn from the generations who came before, Saget has gained a deep understanding of the Central Loire grape varieties. Mastery of these grape varieties, combined with all the facets of their natural character, reveal their full potential.
With love and rigor, Saget’s winemakers set out to conquer France’s best Sauvignons and Pinots Noirs in order to make wines with perfect balance, combining richness and elegance. Pinot Noir is a fragile and demanding grape, but it produces rosé wines of great finesse. Through the meticulous selection of grapes, combined with the skill of men, one of La Perrière’s flagship wines, La Petite Perrière Rosé, was created.
Bright, pale pink color with light raspberry colored highlights. On the nose, the wine develops subtle aromas of raspberry and morello cherry with hints of rose petals. Fresh and lively on the palate; fruity and floral aromas are found against a mineral backdrop.
This wine can be enjoyed when young but will also age well for 1-2 years after the bottling date.
Pairs perfectly with ham, melon or a four seasons pizza.
