Long established in the Loire Valley, Sauvion provides wine drinkers with a pleasurable, handcrafted wine experience. From Vouvray to Sancerre to Muscadet, the wines are elegant yet easy to drink. In other words, pure pleasure! University-trained oenologist Pierre-Jean Sauvion, the fourth generation of his family to be involved in winegrowing and winemaking, sees himself as a “pleasuremaker,” not a winemaker.

The sort of classic “bistro wine” wine that you’d dream of drinking on a warm summer evening in Paris, it’s fantastic for fresh goat-cheese salads, fish in cream sauce, or even herb-roasted pork or chicken.

An arpent is an antiquated land measurement that predated the French Revolution, and Jean–François uses this term to refer to several small parcels of 60-year-old Sauvignon Blanc that are the foundation for this cuvée. It is harvested by hand, fermented by indigenous yeasts in stainless steel tanks, and aged in tank for seven months with some lees stirring.
