This wine is distinguished from the other Savennières of the domaine by its character. Fresh and full of minerality while staying powerful, it exudes all the aromatic richness and elegance of Chenin Blanc grown on a great terroir. Much like a butterfly, the wine seems to flutter and fly! Food Pairing: Can be paired with a wide range of dishes at the table bringing many flavours into balance: hors d'oeuvres, oysters, shellfish, cooked, grilled or sauced fish and veal.

This is very alluring, with salted butter, blanched almond and tarragon highlights amid the core of creamed pear, green plum and white ginger flavors. The distinctive mouthfeel combines creamy and zesty elements, while racy minerality extends the finish. Drink now through 2035.

Brisk and clear as a bell in its evocation of bright quince and briny green olives, this is impeccably clean. While this critic found it luscious, others considered it overtly creamy, though everyone agreed it was a classic Savennieres.

The 2014 Clos du Papillon is 100% Chenin Blanc that spent 9 months in stainless steel. It’s a clean, balanced, incredibly delicious effort that’s loaded with notions of citrus, wet stone, and green herbs, with just a hint of classic Chenin sous bois and mushroom that emerges with time in the glass..March/2018
