Langhe Savennieres. Decanted for a while. Strong, got that waxy thing, golden color. I wanna say it's opulent, but it's not particularly pleasure-full at the moment. Lovely anyway, with character. — a month ago
The fact that this is natural wine does not steer it from the course of truly enjoyable, we’ll-rounded, and I believe ageable Savennieres. Equally rich and playful with herbal tea, lemon curd, nuttiness that’s not overpowering, honeysuckle, and acid for days! — 7 months ago
And for my 300th delectable post, this delicious 1999 savennieres with homemade butternut squash spaetzle.
So rich and textured, very little oxidation, it’s almost perplexing how it could be so old. Mouthcoating... plenty of honeycomb and some green apple and seashell. Continuing to evolve. Perfect pairing so far. Cheers! — 8 months ago
Savennieres of Burgundy. Alice & Olivier making fantastic Chardonnay just outside of Chablis.
So vivid and fresh, wonderfully long tangy lemon and savory (almost curried) finish. This is balanced of fruit and sotolon 101.
Ripe pear and nutty slightly oxidative notes crescendo cohesively. — 2 months ago
With a medium gold color, this bone dry Meursault oozes mineral slathered richness. Oily texture with whiffs of saffron, wax and mushroom. Could be steered towards Savennieres if blind. Fascinating. — 7 months ago
Savennieres is one of my favorite white wines as it offers a lot to explore!
I am getting bruised pear, sour apples, lemon, mango, ginger, minerals, herbs, minerals, a touch of honey and lanolin.
I possibly opened this a little to soon as it is missing characteristics of cheese rind and wooliness that I really like in a well aged Savennieres!
Delightful wine for a Sunday evening even if it is snowing in Davenport, IA. — 8 months ago
In 1953, Jean Baumard acquired vineyard in Quarts de Chaume, in 1968, purchased substantial acreage in Savennieres. Today Jean’s son, Florent, manages the winery. Aromas of green fruits, floral and flinty notes. On the palate green apple, pear, melon and slight nutty flavors, well balanced with acidity. Medium+ length ending, no fluttering with fresh juicy mineral, just like the butterfly on the label! Aging well, had a ‘15 about a year ago! — 7 months ago
