La Saponaire Savennières, 2020 | Anjou, Loire
Region: Anjou Loire
Grape: Chenin Blanc
Farming: Certified organic
Tasting Note: This is a very elegant, easy-drinking style of Savennières. It’s incredibly fine with an airy character often found in Emmanuel Ogereau’s wines and which he puts down to the sandy soils his vineyards are located on, with the freshness and energy coming from the schist soils this region is so famous for.
Background: La Saponniere is a blend of 4 plots in Savennières including a portion from their Clos le Grand Beaupréau vineyard.
Serving: Serving: A bit warmer than straight out of the fridge cold (12–14°C).
