Damien Laureau Savennieres “Les Genets” 2016


Damien Laureau makes this Savennieres from a selection of the sandier soil terroirs, mostly from the Moulin de Beaupréau lieu-dit. Les Genets is tank fermented, then matured in barrel for 12 months, followed by a final elevage in tank for another 4-6 months.

This cuvée comes from older vines, at least 25-years old, planted on soils of sand, schist and slate. It was vinified in 400-litre barrels, using a 5% sliver of new minimal-toast oak, with a one-year élevage in barrel, followed by four months in stainless steel cuve. The aromatics here are very pure, with very confidently perfumed fruits, apple, mirabelle and peach, with a trace of wildflowers, minerals and oak. This is followed by a succulent palate, tense and minerally, with great substance too. It feels so bright and balanced. Very fine, just a notch behind the splendid 2014 vintage.94 points, Chris Kissack,, February 2018.
