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.
Domaine Sauvat is situated in Europe‘s largest volcanic region (classed as a Unesco World Heritage Site).
This small, family-run wine domaine covers 11 ha of vines nestled in the foothills of a lava flow. Its unique terroir beneﬁts from a micro-climate and produces wines of exceptional quality. The hillsides of the Boudes appellation are composed of a pebbly terroir in which only vines flourish.
The south facing vines are planted on a steep hillside with a clay-limestone soil and lie beneath a basaltic copestone. The vines are thus preserved by their geographical position. The Foehn effect is evident in the area surrounding the vineyards. The humid westerly winds are often carried up above. the reliefs before being carried back down over the vines and subsequenta warming them up. This process simultaneously regulates temperatures and precipitation. The Boudes wine producing region benefits from perfect vine growing conditions with warm summers and less than 500 mm in rainfall.
