BACKGROUND

In 1995, Jean-Louis Saget purchased the Loiret Frères Company located in Le Pallet, in the heart of the Muscadet Sèvre et Maine AOC. Thanks to this acquisition, Saget La Perrière developed strong relationships with many growers in this area. The Muscadet de Sèvre & Maine sur Lie “Les Cilssages d’Or” is the result of the combination between the local people’s passion for their vineyards and the expertise of winemaker Bruno Mineur. Stretching from one side of the country to the other, the river of kings has been the homeland of the Saget family for nine generations. Originally from Pouilly-sur-Loire, we decided over twenty years ago to head off in search of other treasures that our beautiful wine region could offer. Over the years, our quest led us along both banks of the river, reaching out to local winegrowers and terroirs. Saget La Perrière signature brands epitomize the hallmark accessibility and freshness of Loire wines. Our wines embrace a unique showcase range of Loire appellations; from its original home in Pouilly sur Loire to Sancerre, Chinon, Vouvray, Anjou & Muscadet forming an unprecedented collection across the Loire Valley.

WINEMAKING & VINTAGE NOTES

Grapes are mechanically harvested in the middle of September. After pressing the grapes, the must is clarified for 48 hours. Once decanted, wine ferments in epoxy coated tanks between 59-68°F. Special yeasts are added, mostly FTH, to develop the natural characteristics of the grape variety. After the alcoholic fermentation, the wine stays on its lees which are composed of 95% dead yeast. Wine will never be racked until bottling, which provides a high concentration of natural CO² (1600 mg/L).

TASTING NOTES

Beautiful pale gold color with a few green highlights. On the nose, the wine offers aromas of white flowers over a mineral frame. Long and well-balanced on the palate, with very fresh aromas of white peach and pear.
