History & Geography

The caves at La Perrière, which were formed naturally 200 million years ago, allow visitors to embark on a magical, not-to-be-missed journey back in time to the very beginnings of Mother Earth. The Saget family has great respect for the history and identity of these timeless surroundings and decided to turn them into a temple dedicated to the Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir grape varieties. In so doing, it aims to unravel and reveal the mysteries they hold within them. The 43 hectares of La Perrière are heavily dominated by Sauvignon Blanc, planted over roughly 38 hectares, compared to only 5 hectares of Pinot Noir. Sauvignon Blanc is only permitted for the production of Sancerre Blanc wines. It is Pinot Noir which is used for either reds or rosés. All the vineyards are sustainably managed using soil tillage and grass cover. The set-up of the Sancerre wine region and its rolling hills provide very good exposure, which helps the grapes to attain exceptional maturity.
