Coeur Sauvage is produced by Les Caves de la Loire, a co-operative in the France's Loire Valley, established in 1951. The co-op, in turn, is part of a large conglomerate, Loire Properties, founded in 1872.

Loire is one of the most fascinating wine regions on Earth. No matter what your preference in wine may be, you will find it here. The area's red, white, Ros?, sparkling and dessert wines are as good as anywhere else in the world.

The Loire River features undulating curves and switchbacks which cause its 600 miles of river to cover only 200 miles as the crow flies. Along that route is some of the most beautiful scenery in France; it's also known for the many majestic castles which dot the countryside.

The region's diverse microclimates and soils account for the many different wines produced here. The easternmost region is where Sauvignon Blanc reigns, especially in the areas of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fum?.

Just outside those appellations, however, can be found equally exciting Sauvignon Blanc for a fraction of the price. Such is the case with our selection.

The purity and freshness of wines from this region cannot be overstated. While Sauvignon Blanc can be grown to great heights all over the world, there is no place like the Loire. Here we have powerful scents of white peach, lime zest and freshly cut herbs, intertwined with touches of nasturtium, pink grapefruit and orange blossom.
