Saget La Perrière

M DE MULONNIÈRE ROSÉ D’ANJOU 2015

Background

Château de la Mulonnière is a historic wine estate in the Loire Valley producing excellent wines since 1860. Acquired by the Saget family in 2002, the property boasts exceptional terroirs in the most prestigious appellations of the Angers region. We give the upmost respect to the local terroir and traditional flora resulting in the estate’s vineyards receiving garden-like care and attention. Our dedication is reflected in the wines showing all the sensibility and nobility of the Anjou region. Château de la Mulonnière’s second wine, its M label, is a wonderful introduction to Anjou wines.

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.

Saget la Perrière signature brands epitomize the hallmark accessibility and freshness of Loire wines. Guy Saget embraces a unique showcase range of Loire appellations whilst La Perrière, the cradle of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, offers a charming, multi-faceted array of the Central Loire's two prime grape varieties and Château de la Mulonnière emblematic grape variety, Chenin Blanc fully displays its versatility through it home in Anjou.

Appellation

Anjou (Loire Valley), France

Varietal Composition

40% Cabernet Franc, 30% Grolleau, 20% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 10% Gamay

Winemaking

The grapes are hand harvested from the schist and clay vineyards when beautifully ripe and then sorted in the cellars to ensure they retain as much of their “complexity” as possible. They are de-stalked and a proportion of the harvested grapes undergo skin maceration and then fermented at low temperature until the desired balance is obtained. A few months’ maturing in the tanks is followed by blending, then bottling the following spring.

Tasting Notes

Brilliant pink color. Delicate and fruity on the nose with aromas of red currant and raspberry. Very smooth on the palate with notes of red fruit with spicy undertones. A perfect pairing with tomato salads, barbecue-grilled meats, spicy food or even cherry tart.
