The Wines of Florent Baumard (Domaine Wine Storage - Chicago, IL): Florent described how this cuvee differs from the "regular" and it really has to do with the inclusion of berries with subtle boytritis. This definitely had a richer, more found character...a hint more cherry, peach, and floral notes. The palate was a touch creamier too than the regular cuvee. Still wasn't super crisp...wish it had an edgier personality.
Tasting with Florent Baumard (Chicago, IL): This is slightly sweeter and richer than the regular Savennières. There's a dominance of spice and honey, both on the nose and palate. The texture is much thicker, and this wine has much more gravitas. The alcohol is also handled a lot better in this cuvée thanks to the richness. However, this still doesn't have the acidity to hold everything together, and a few small sips is all I can manage of this wine.
