Family estate for 5 generations (since 1870), Philippe Sauger now operates 38 hectares in the Cheverny and Cour-Cheverny appellations
Although practicing traditional winemaking, Philippe Sauger likes to innovate in the production of his wines, with a constant concern for quality. The terroir is made up of generally quite lean soils (quality factor) of a sandy clay nature on which a grape variety such as Sauvignon expresses itself perfectly, releasing all its aromatic power and Pinot Noir, its finesse. But we will also find siliceous soils in places. This diversity, combined with different quality grape varieties, makes it possible to produce fine wines with multiple expressions and flavors. The Domaine's grape varieties are essentially made up of Sauvignon and Chardonnay (more in the minority) for the Whites, which represents 70% of the Vineyard, Gamay and Pinot Noir (predominant), for the Reds (25% of the Vineyard) and Rosé ( 5%); The practice of systematic partial grassing of the vines, tillage of the soil, the reasoned use of treatment products and the control of yields, make it possible to obtain the healthiest possible premium quality grapes, which, when harvested at maturity , produce recognized wines.
