BACKGROUND

Marie de Beauregard Vouvray comes from an estate located in the village of “La Roche Corbon” near the city of Vouvray. Saget La Perrière has a partnership with this estate for over 10 years. Bruno Mineur, winemaker, selects the best of the estate grown grapes for blending and maturing. The name “Marie de Beauregard” is a homage to the first owner’s wife of the water mill where the wines are aged. 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 September and very carefully sorted so as to avoid any vegetal trace. Before being put in the vat, the grapes are de-stalked and crushed. A five day pre-fermented maceration enables a slow abstraction of the phenolic compounds. A regulated vinification with a maximal 82°F peak and minimal mechanical intervention enables the extraction of very silky tannins. The wine is barrel aged for 9 months.

TASTING NOTES

Marie de Beauregard Chinon is a beautiful garnet color with purple reflections. The nose is fruity with aromas of blackberry and cassis, perfectly blended with woody notes. The palate is well balanced with silky tannins elegantly bearing notes of stewed sweet spices, highlighted with a hint of vanilla.
