A round, smooth, and well balanced wine. Savennières is a tiny region located on the northern banks of the Loire River, just across from the town of Rochefort Sur Loire. The entire appellation consists of fewer than 200 acres (77 hectares) of vines, all planted to Chenin Blanc. The South/Southeast facing vineyards are planted on unique soils composed of schistous volcanic debris mixed with sandstone and granite, imparting a strong, intensely original minerality to the Chenin Blanc grape. Maximum permitted yields are the lowest in France for dry whites (25 Hectoliters per Hectare), resulting in wines of stunning concentration and perfume. The combination of this concentration with the naturally high acidity of the Chenin Blanc grape results in wines capable of lasting and improving for decades.
This wine is par excellence, a wine to accompany grilled fish or sauce, seafood, hors d'oeuvres.
"Pronounced cyanic, fruit pit bitterness and wet stone are prominent in Baumard’s 2007 Savennieres, which when combined with an alkaline aspect definitely pull this in an austere direction. But ripe apple, quince, and peach supply an equal and opposite fruit reaction, which results in fascinating counterpoint. Refreshing primary fruit acidity helps counteract the sense of bitterness and lend the persistent finish vivacity. "
