Savennieres Cuvee Speciale 2016
Perfect for those lovers of beautifully crafted steely, fresh and zesty whites. This is a wonderful white to match up alongside a variety of festive dishes, from extravagant roasts, to cheese platters, to all manner of desserts, as well as gorgeous all on its own!
We have always loved the Cuvée Speciale, and found it to be one of the finest in Epiré’s range in terms of energy and complexity. It is sourced exclusively from the domaine’s best vineyard, Le Hu-Boyau, one of the highest-lying vineyards in Savennieres. The southern and southern-eastern exposure also brings incredible ripeness to the grapes, whilst the proximity to the Loire River keeps the temperatures moderate. It is fermented in stainless steel vats and then aged for 9 months in old oak and chestnut barrels. The structure of this wine allows it to age and develop for up to 15 years. This dry wine is rich, densely textured with powerful apple, tart citrus and clementine fruits coming through with a backbone of spice and creaminess from the wood and a pleasant touch of rounding honeyed sweetness. Everything is harmoniously balanced with the addition of mouth-watering acidity and a steely minerality, and the length is something else. A perfect partner to a range of appetizers and creamy fish dishes! This cuvée is really starting to come into its own now that it has had over a half a decade to round and mature, developing wonderful secondary flavours.
