Le Domaine Saget Pouilly Fume
The Pouilly Fume Le Domaine Saget is delicate, lively and fruity, evoking reminiscent aromas blackcurrant leaves, a very nice complexity of citrus fruits with tones of acacia blossom. There are lots of flowery fruit flavors on the palate, a good acid balance and a pleasing after-taste with good length.
Quality and respect of nature have always been the philosophy of Vignobles Guy Saget. Brought up in the vineyards, the Saget brothers; Jean-Louis and Christian, learned from a very young age to love and respect the soil. Vignobles Guy Saget sources two-thirds of the production in the Loire Valley from their estates with the remainder from long-term relationships with families of vine growers. Le Domaine Saget results from the unification of the best vines and soils belonging to the Saget family. The wine is sourced from about 10 hectares of Guy Saget's vineyards spread over the "lieux-dits" of Vaurigny, Les Chantalouettes, Les Fougeres and Les Roches, all located in the district of Pouilly-sur-Loire. The average age of the vines is 20 years and the soils are mostly clay-limestone kimmeridgian marls (a mix of pre-historic shells and clay). Since 2001, the winery has been totally renovated in the heart of the village of Pouilly-sur-Loire in order estate vinify the wines.
