Savennières ‘La Petite Roche’ Damien Laureau 2016
Damien Laureau, Savennières, Anjou-Saumur
"This domaine has found its cruising speed and is now one of the unmissable names in the appellation." La Revue du Vin de France
With 8.5ha of organically farmed vineyards, Damien Laureau currently produces three very different expressions of the Savennières terroir, produced from 3 plots of land: Les Genêts, Le Bel Ouvrage and Savennières-Roche-aux-Moines. Working with a tiny team out of a small shed, everything here is done by hand and the attention to detail shines through in Damien’s wines. As a result, production remains very small.
Exotic aromas of pineapple, lime, grapefruit, honey and apricot blossom. Rich and concentrated with a delicious underlying nuttiness, it has a racy acidity and captivatingly long, fruit finish.
Grape: 100% Chenin Blanc
