Chateau D'Epire Savennieres Terre de Schiste

6 in stock

Savennieres is considered the pinnacle of Chenin Blanc expression, and here there can be little doubt that we have a fine Chenin grown in schist; a super fleshiness and trademark hint of walnut on the finish are balanced by a clear core of minerality and acidity to keep this bone-dry white as sharp as a razor.

Now in the care of the 5th generation of Bizards, Paul, this fabulous estate, located in a converted 12th Century Romanesque church, the Chenin produced here is a true testament to the rocky soils the old vines grow in.
