Savennieres Maitre de Chais 2015
The sensational Cuvee Maitre du Chais 2015, is a real revelation. This superb Savennieres was the 'baby' of Epire's cellar master Christophe. Produced from carefully selected grapes from their best plots, like Vilmart's Coeur de Cuvee, the first pressed juice is set aside, so that only the 'heart of the cuvee' is retained. This is transferred into a single accacia cask to begin its slow fermentation, with natural yeasts. There is obviously no malo-lactic fermentation to ensure that the Savennieres' mineralitly is retained and it is left to age 'sur lie'. A wine of minimum intervention, but nonetheless having received extra special care and attention from the doting Christophe. This really is an exceptional Savennieres, with the same line and mineral expression as the Cuvee Speciale, but with a much greater intensity, gras and length. The balance here is perfect. Unfortunately, as with all good things, quantities are rather limited, so grab this one whilst you can!
