Many people have said this wine is flat, but I'd argue it's subtle. You certainly pick up some minerality. We enjoyed with with braised swordfish with peppers, olives and onion. I thought it was perfect as it didn't have so much acidity that it overpowered the fish, but complimented it. I'm going to look for some more.
Really classic showing here, with that lovely, complex nose of beeswax, lanolin, hay, honeydew, and a bit of orange peel. A nice hit of acid on the palate, followed by a lovely, unctuous texture, and long, slightly sweet finish. Like any good Savennieres, it's a nice, cerebral wine that went really well with dinner and is a super bargain.
