Winemaker's Notes:

Light, easy to drink, thirst-quenching, Muscadet Sèvre et Maine (Sèvre and Maine being the two rivers crossing the Muscadet region) is known as "healthy wine" due to its lack of residual sugar (close to zero) and its moderate alcohol content of 12%.

It is the perfect refreshing wine with spicy food. Its iodine aroma brought by the ocean breeze is an ideal complement to Japanese cuisine.

About Sauvion:

One of the best-known Muscadet producers, Sauvion has long been established in the Loire Valley. Jean-Ernest (often referred to as the "Wizard of the Loire") and Yves Sauvion have carefully put together a range of delicious and diversified wines that have set the tone for much of the Loire Valley.

Château du Cléray-Sauvion, located in the heart of the Nantes region, is one of the oldest estates of the Muscadet Sèvre et Maine region and serves as the home to the Sauvion family. It is also one of the few Muscadet-producing Châteaux.
