Producer
Sauvion is a well established Loire producer that, while offering a négociant range from the gamut of appellations along this great river, specialises in Muscadet, where the family’s Château de Cléray is based. The new generation is represented by Pierre-Jean Sauvion, who joined the business in 2004 and is now the oenologist.

Vineyard
The vineyards spread over thirty-eight hectares of which thirty-five is Muscadet Sèvre et Maine. The soil is sileceous clay, giving a long ripening period and a consequently fuller-bodied, more flavoursome wines. Grapes for this wine were harvested late, to give greater sugar levels.

Winery
The wine was fermented in temperature-controlled vats, and fermentation arrested to leave fifty grammes per litre of sugar.

Taste
Effectively, a rare medium-sweet Muscadet of thrilling purity and balance: the rounded late-harvest flavours of peach and red apple are offset by a stony minerality and a sense of almost salty clarity that indicates the wine’s origins.
