Now this is an interesting wine, savennieres-like--waxy/tart/oxidative-- but wilder, less tamed, drinking it felt very much like entering a time machine, worth seeking out if interested in historical wines.

Romorantin. Like a cross between Vouvray and Savenierres. Clean with bracing acidity. Notes of orange zest, saline, anise and almond skin. Pre phylloxera vines in Loire. Geeky and super fun.

Ungrafted romorantin vines dating back to the 1860s. Quince, hazelnuts, Meyer lemon. Slightly oxidative. What a treat.

Pre-phylloxera wine from Loire made from a genetically relative to Chardonnay.It has higher acidity that shows in a lemon mouthsqueeze of your cheeks.Needs fat in food to balance it.
