So elegant and light on the palate, this '11 had notes of wet stone and green apple and got a creamy texture as it opened. Great with the oysters and pearls at FL.

Not the best from Savennieres but can't go wrong with this wine. Honey, almond, oily notes. Warm body and long finish. Can age.

Such such and underappreciated producer. I know they're not cool, but man this one is smoking.

Just lovely, as always a beautiful example.
Bright crisp, with great crunchy Apple, lanolin, melon and Chalky minerals.
