Community Tasting History

Community Tasting Notes

 Tasted by i musicisti di boston on 9/29/2005: great stuff, but my lot of a half case has been inconsistent, with 2 bottles being maderized to varying degrees and 2 others showing quite well. This one was showing well, with the beautiful deep gold of its 12 years, a lovely honey/floral nose, deep minerality and a slighty thicker mouthfeel. A real pleasure to drink and a great find at about $15/per. (1854 views)

Savennières

Savennières is a small, relatively well-known Loire Valley region producing wines made from the chenin blanc grape.

They are not conventionally fruity, and benefit from extensive aging.

Savennieres often have smells like white truffles and animal notes, even when young. They can last for a tremendous amount of time, and some people mistake the evolved aromas after 10-20 years with oxidization, but I have yet to taste an oxidised chenin blanc, since the amount and type of acidity (many g/l and tartaric) preserve the fruit in a much more effective way than e.g. chardonnay.
