Romorantin expresses itself perfectly on this terroir and produces an exceptional wine with complex aromas of honey and acacia. This is a dry yet lively white wine. Subtle with a good length in the mouth.
Domaine Sauger has been family owned for 5 generations: From François-Sylvain, to Eugène, Lucien, Marcel, and now finally Philippe, the family has managed the winery since 1870.
In 1920, the grandfather Lucien operated 4 hectares of hybrid variety vines. The sale of the wine was done by a local négociant.
In 1958, Marcel, Philippe’s father, was forced to pull his hybrid vines due to phylloxera. Then in 1972, 4 hectares of vines were entirely replanted with noble varietals, such as Sauvignon.
In 1988, after receiving his BEPA in Viticulture-Oenology, and full of knowledge and experience after his internships in Gers and Sancerre, Philippe took the reins of the family estate and abandoned all other agriculture (asparagus, pickles ..) except for grapes, after which the domaine had 7 hectares to use for vineyards.
Philippe’s interest is focused exclusively on the vine, all while developing the vine nursery to the requirements of today. Modification of the production system and winemaking ensued: modernization of equipment, acquisition of a temperature controlled tank system … all this has led to a range of more rich and complex wines.
Today, Domaine Sauger is spread out over 30 hectares within the Appellation Contrôlée of Cheverny.
