Mike Saviage

Light straw gold. Heavy weight in the glass. Sweet fruit nose. Notes of pineapple, sea shell, some apricot, white flowers and a little spice. Rich and fat in the mouth. Some acidity in the background. If I were to taste this blind I doubt I would guess Raveneau. But knowing the vigneron you can pick out the little notes which identify it as so. This is a pleasant drink right now with the warm vintage that provides the bright fruit with semi decent acidity.

A lovely settled yet fresh nose. A seashell / saline quality, a touch of sandalwood and lovely delicate secondary notes emerging. Long and very evolved. Delicious
