Saget La Perrière

LA PETITE PERRIÈRE PINOT NOIR 2015

Background

In 1790, the Saget family embarked upon a long history dedicated to vines and wine, firmly placing Saget among just a handful of estates that can enjoy their third successive century of business.
Generations of our family have worked to create our signature Saget La Perrière wines- melding the perfect balance, a blend of richness and elegance via the meticulous selection of grapes, expertly crafted by our skilled winemakers for the La Petite Perrière wines. The new designation of Vin de France offered us the opportunity to explore and discover the ideal balance between the fruitiness of those varieties grown in the south and their acidity when produced in the northern region (Loire) and thus La Petite Perrière wines were created. The Vin de France designation is utilized for the entire La Petite Perrière range.
La Petite Perrière Pinot Noir is largely sourced from our own estate vineyards in Touraine (Loire Valley) and a part of the blend is sourced from the South of France through our long term partners.

Appellation

Vin de France, France

Varietal Composition

100% Pinot Noir

Winemaking

The grapes are mechanically harvested in the middle of September. The 2015 vintage had lower yields, due to adverse climate conditions (heavy rains, a chilly spring, lack of sun and dry weather during the harvest time) and thus the growing cycle was delayed. However, these conditions give us a wine with excellent acidity. This vintage is well-balanced with intense aromatic richness. The Pinot Noir already offers silky tannins with a good ageing potential.

Tasting Notes

Beautiful ruby color mingled with a garnet hue. On the nose, aromas of black fruits such as blackberry and blueberry. The palate is fleshy at point of entry then full, ample and generous, flowing into a crisp cherry-driven finish with an ultra fresh beading sensation. A mouth-filling wine offering up the generosity and typicity of a Pinot Noir that has just hit maturity.
