Savennières 'Les Genêts' Damien Laureau, Savennières, Anjou-Saumur 2018
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.
Aeolian deposits and silts on sandy schists. Vinification and aging in barrels.
The fineness of white fruits such as pear, quince or lime as well as white flowers such as jasmine or vine flower express in the nose. The complexity and freshness are the first qualities of this wine. The freshness of the fruit associated with the mineral is underlined.
