"MARIE DE BEAUREGARD" VOUVRAY
Saget La Perrière
100% Chenin Blanc
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, they decided over twenty years ago to head off in search of other treasures that this beautiful wine region could offer. Over the years, thier quest led them 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. These 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.
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.
Grapes are mechanically harvested at the beginning of October. The grape pressing is done very slowly with a pneumatic press. The must is clarified thanks to a static cold settling for two days before being fermented. Fermentation starts naturally without any added yeast.
This wine is aged in 2nd and 3rd use barrels so as to maintain the unique varietal characteristics.
This wine displays a lovely pale yellow hue with golden tints. The rich, intense nose is both floral, with notes of lime blossom, and fruity, with a hint of quince. These are followed by an array of oaky aromas with vanilla nuances. On the palate, this Vouvray’s sweetness is immediately apparent, revealing notes of vanilla which give way to a lovely freshness on the finish.
Excellent with foie gras, veal rounds, acacia flower beignets, caramel custard, tarte tatin, poached peaches. After a few years ageing it will pair nicely with white meats and poultry.
