Patrick Baudouin’s Savennières 2011 is made from 3 different parcels of low yielding, old Chenin vines with an average age of 35 years planted on ancient schist soils. Patrick is passionate about making wines with minimal intervention – he uses only the gentlest pressing of the grapes to produce the purest expression of Chenin and terroir. Aged on the fine lees for 10 months in a combination of 50% new Burgundian Oak Barrels and 50% old, the oak is very well-integrated. This Savennières is precise with an intense, smokey minerality.
Grapes: Chenin Blanc (100%)
