Community Tasting Notes 3

  • uncorkingwiththecordiaks Does not like this wine: 81 points

    December 15, 2021 - Smelled like…feet? Tasted fine. Oaky.

  • guillermo- Does not like this wine:

    November 20, 2021 - Had it because I wanted to explore the stylistic differences between Vouvray sec (which I love) and Savennières, which I’ve read is traditionally differentiated (other than climat) by a more oxidative style of winemaking vis a vis traditional Vouvray’s more reductive style.

    Whatever its other nuances, based on the prior notes and my sourcing, this wine seems stylistically a good example of Savennières.

    If that’s true then, in short, for my palate, the oxidative style does Chenin Blanc no favors, inserting Gewürztraminer-like and Sauvignon Blanc-like flavors which I dislike. I’ll stick to Vouvray.

    May 21, 2021 - As would be expected, very tight at this stage, and with a pronounced bitterness but good concentration. Rated on potential as I have enjoyed this producer's Savennieres for a number of years now and they have a very good track record for aging. Much prefer the 2015/2016 editions over this vintage though.
