This Sauvignon is typical of the Loire Valley. It is dry, light and refreshing. It has the classic elderflower nose with a grassy elderberry palate and lively finish.

£12.40 Per Bottle
We have been buying from Cedric for many years and they have a policy of minimum intervention. The respect for their land is one of the reasons they appeal to us. Have a look at our other wines from Guy Allion.
Domaine du Haut Perron has been passed down from father to son for more than 4 generations. Each has helped to expand and improve the quality of its wine production. Until the 1950s, Cedric’s grandfather, Raymond Allion, cultivated the Domaine in mixed farming like most farms in Touraine. This involved planting a few hectares of vines, cereals and included meadows to feed the horse and other farm animals.
It was not until 1968 that his father Guy decided to devote himself gradually only to viticulture. The estate is managed according to the Terra Vitis programme, a codified system which demands not only respect for the environment but knowledge of the land, parcel by parcel. This sensitivity to the environment means that natural rather than chemical solutions can be used in the vineyard.
Guy Allion, Sauvignon Blanc is very good value wine from the Loire Valley.
