This is a blend of three terroirs in the eastern part of Savennières near the village of Épiré. Grey schist and rhyolite terroirs with one parcel adjacent to the famed Coulée de Serrant. It is aged 12 months in neutral oak then 6 months in tank before bottling. Preserved lemons and orange pith, with a mineral undertone, very bright and present. The palate feels pure, fresh and bright, with lifted fruit, pithy bitterness and gentle minerality. Succulent, composed, and electric. Absolutely delicious, a superb wine.
