Savennieres

Roagna

Derthona Montemarzino Timorasso 2017

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

Pitrouillet Savennières Chenin Blanc

$34
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!

Domaine aux Moines

Savennières-Roche aux Moines Chenin Blanc 1999

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!

Domaine aux Moines is always a special treat, especially with age.

Alice et Olivier De Moor

Bourgogne-Chitry Chardonnay 2015

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.

Maison Roche de Bellene

Meursault Charmes 1er Cru Chardonnay

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

Le Bel Ouvrage Savennières Chenin Blanc 2013

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.

More refined and laser like than the Anjou blanc or aoc wine. Definitely less iconoclastic but more appealing to a broad range of edgy white wine fans. Blazing acidity citrus subtle lanolin melon and honey.

Ya it’s Wierd! I expected this to be richer than the Anjou and it turned out to be the leaner cuvee

Domaine des Baumard

Clos du Papillon Savennières Chenin Blanc 2015

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
