Great wine. High salinity. Pale gold in color. Notes of lemon, honey, melon, white flowers. Rich, oily mouthfeel. Medium acidity. Paired with a shrimp pasta dish. Reminds me of spring on the ocean.

I Really like this one. I wonder how much the age has to do with what I like about it. So even mannered, rich but not opulent. Biting acidity caps off each quaff. More please!

17.5. Savennieres doesn’t get much better. This has more acidity than the usual Baumard or Joly, but lots of fruit, v long. Could hold 5+ years.

Amazing. Super rich on the nose, cinnamon, clove, vanilla, bread pudding like, laced with lemon, apple and apricots. Incredible intensity and complexity, shows what savennieres can be
