Description

The Domaine du Haut Perron has been passed on from father to son for more than 4 generations. Each has contributed to expanding it and improving the quality of its production. Until the 1950s Raymond Allion, cultivated the estate in polyculture like most farms in Touraine. A few hectares of vines, cereals, meadows to feed the horse and other farm animals. It was not until 1968 that father Guy decided to devote himself gradually to viticulture, and did so completly in 1991.

Located in the Touraine sub-region of the Loire valley, the soil here is rich in clay-limestone, and the excellent micro climate of the Cher river valley is favourable for viticulture. Sauvignon Blanc is king of their white wines, and the Domaine's reds are made from Gamay, Pinot Noir and some Malbec. 

' Initial aromas of green apples, citrus fruits and white flowers. The palate is lively, fresh and expressive, finely balanced with citrus flavours to the fore. Perfect as an aperitif, or as an accompaniment to asparagus, seafood, fish with a slightly creamy sauce.'
