New brand embraces Muscadet wine revival
Just over a year ago, Saget La Perrière announced its acquisition of a wine estate in the Muscadet region located in the Clisson “cru communal” area. That made Saget La Perrière the only family-owned Loire wine company to have a foothold in each of the four great Loire Valley wine regions through its own domains.
A year on, and Saget La Perrière arrives at Vinexpo Bordeaux with its first vintage from the new estate – Locus. Explaining its thinking, the company says: “Locus is more than just a wine estate. Its raison d’être and essence are derived from the diversity of the oceanic terroirs found in the Loire Atlantique region. Locus only offers wines made from the Folle Blanche and Melon de Bourgogne grape varieties, and as a champion of these traditional Pays Nantais varietals, Saget La Perrière is committed to producing wines that reveal their nest variations.”
Saget La Perrière wants, through Locus, to be part of the Muscadet region wine revival. In Bordeaux, the company will welcome Jordane Saget to its stand for the Locus brand launch. A well-known street artist in Paris, Jordane’s distinctive art has given birth to Locus’ graphic universe. The official launch of Locus will take place from 4pm-6pm on 13th of May at the Saget La Perrière stand.
