Anne and Michel are among those wine producers who, over the past 25 years, have turned the Côtes d’Auvergne vineyards into a dependable source of quality wines. A forerunner in the growing of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes in the Boudes vineyards, Michel was also among the first to barrel age the wines.
Over the years, they have modernized their production facilities: their vinification cellars, barrel cellars, bottling facility and a tasting area, home to contemporary art exhibitions every year.
Today, Michel still finds his inspiration from respecting the raw material, and seeks to deepen the character of the different terroirs expressed in his wines. This approach has resulted in Domaine SAUVAT picking up numerous GOLD medals in French wine competitions and the Prix d’Excellence in 2012 and 2013 at the “Concours Général Agricole” wine competition in Paris.
