Minerals galore; honey, spice, citrus and white fruits; decant for a fuller expression. Drink young or wait 8-10 years for fuller development. The revered appellation Savennières captures the attention of wine aficionados for its extreme minerality, texture, and aging capability. The Le Moulin du Gué parcel is located on the plateau of the village of Savennières, opposite the windmill. Chenin Blanc grapes are manually harvested in multiple passes, with some having botrytis (noble rot) which brings complexity and richness. Partial malolactic fermentation, aged on lees (expended yeasts) for 11 months in barrel with some bâtonnage (stirring).
