Domain Sauvète, 100 Old Tradition in the Lovely Loire Valley
The history of Domain Sauvete traces back to 1905. The winery is located in Monthou Sur Cher, in the heart of the Val de Loire and its vineyards cover an area of 17 hectares. The plantings for white wines is located on the plateaus of Mardelle and Bocagerie, while red wine grapes come from the hills of Toucheronde. The local land consists of clay-siliceous soil.
Winemaking Process for High-Quality Wine
The terroir of Domain Sauvète is rich in several pebbles including perron, flint, and spongiary. Domain Sauvete plant Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin, and Chardonnay grapes for white wines on 8.5 hectares while the remaining 8.5 hectares are planted with Gamay, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Pineau. After the formation of grapes, leaves are removed from the vines by hand to allow exposure to the sun. Here, the removal of some bad grapes also takes place too to ensure a balanced and healthy harvest. Harvesting is also done manually to preserve the integrity of the fruit during pressing. The producers vinify each cuvée separately to maintain its originality. The crisp taste of the wines at Domain Sauvète comes from the natural taste of excellent quality grapes. The fermentation process takes place at a controlled temperature to maintain blance and harmony of aromas.
