Saget La Perrière

M DE MULONNIÈRE CHENIN BLANC 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

100% Chenin Blanc

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. Vinified traditionally with slow maceration at low temperature, gentle clarification and bottling in late spring.

Tasting Notes

Subtle aromas of almond and acacia, complemented by fresh grape and honey notes. On the palate, the wine is soft and well-balanced with lovely length due to the freshness provided by the Chenin Blanc. Enjoy as an aperitif to share with friends. The perfect accompaniment to fish - both cooked and raw, Indian or Asian-inspired dishes, and even fruit-based desserts.
