This wine has depth and cut, with a salted butter edge giving a mouthwatering feel while pear eau-de-vie, green plum and quince flavors hang in reserve. A lovely salty minerality is embedded in the long finish, which is dry and nervy, but also stylish. Should age gracefully. Drink now through 2020.
Savennieres, a great appellation in the Loire, is not terribly well-known, but it produces stunningly dry whites from Chenin Blanc with a boatload of minerality and, in many cases, surprising aging potential. This brilliant example possesses abundant notes of crushed rocks, wet steel, white currants, quince, honeyed grapefruit and spring flowers. Poised, pure and long, this beautiful wine should drink well for 4-5 years, possibly up to a decade, although I would prefer to drink it too soon rather than too late.
