For over thirty years, the Saget family has successfully established, maintained and nurtured special relationships with its contract wine growing families, enabling it to create the Guy Saget signature portfolio and craft a collection of the finest Loire appellations. Whilst on his travels, Jean-Louis Saget successfully tracked down the most propitious climates and consummate winemaking expertise in each appellation. This age-old viticultural wisdom has been passed down from one generation to the next and Laurent Saget is its current custodian. As passionate as his father, Laurent continues to select top quality wines and to take the Guy Saget signature to another level, thereby guaranteeing its longevity. Guy Saget signature wines are fermented traditionally. The decision to forego oak ageing stems from a desire to fully reveal the potential of Loire wines. As a Loire ambassador, the Guy Saget portfolio embraces around thirty appellations, all of them showing hallmark Loire features. These include Pouilly-Fumé, Sancerre, Chinon, Vouvray and Muscadet :
The premium ambassador signature of Sauvignon blanc and Pinot noir varietals.
The Saget family has great respect for the history and identity of La Perrière and decided to turn it into a temple dedicated to the Sauvignon blanc and Pinot noir grape varieties. In so doing, it aims to unravel and reveal the mysteries they hold within them, drawing its inspiration from different generations and developing in-depth knowledge of the Central Loire grape varieties. Their knowledge of Sauvignon blanc and Pinot noir has therefore naturally led them to explore every aspect of the varietals and fully reveal their potential. The Saget family thus set off in search of the finest Sauvignon blancs and Pinot noirs, armed with both passion and rigour. Their painstaking selection coupled with wine growing expertise have produced wines showing impeccable balance, combining richness and elegance. La Perrière creation wines exemplify a straightforward approach to grape varieties, as evidenced by one of the houses flagship labels, La Petite Perrière. The Classics on the other hand demonstrate the purity and minerality of terroir-driven Sauvignon blanc and Pinot noir from appellations whilst the Icons – namely the Mégalithe & Sacrilège labels – take the grape varieties into the realms of age-worthy fine wines.
A family-owned Loire valley Ambassador. Saget La Perrière – A journey along the Loire
“If ever a river and the surrounding landscapes the French national identity and lifestyle, it would surely be the Loire and the wine regions that line it. Stretching from one side of the country to the other, the river of kings has been the homeland of our 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. We invite you to discover the gems we found on our journey and hope to share with you our passion for one of Frances finest wine regions”. The Saget Family
