Winemaking Criteria

We patient wait for a beautiful ripeness of Chenin Blanc to get a wonderful harvest on September 30th and October 6th, 2015. Its current aromatic complexity, its perfect balance and its aromatic persistence result of a meticulous elevate:

  • Delicate pressing
  • Twice settled out, with a stabulation on fines lees in order to enrich its structure
  • Fermentation in 400L new oak barrels with a controlled temperature of 17-18°C (62.6 - 64.4°F), malo-lactic fermentation on a part of the cuvee.
  • During the elevate, thanks to a careful oxygenation in barrel and an ageing on lees during 8 months
  • Bottling occurred in September 2016 after filtering and a very limited addition of sulfites 

A Sensory Experience

A beautiful canary-yellow robe, with delicate green and golden hues, a sign of the freshness of the Chenin. The nose is powerful and charming, and exudes the nobility of the coteau located between Bouchemaine and Savennières, with its soil composed of schist…Then come aromas of apricot, peach, followed by vanilla and the wonderful wooden smoothness of the elevage (400L oak barrels). The mouth is harmonious, round and powerful. It reveals a nice freshness in the final.

Wine and Food Matching

After a carafage of our Savennières "Eclat de Schiste", its aromatic complexity and its balance will allow numerous food and wine matching, such as:

  • Fish or shellfish (lobster, shrimp...) with their creamy sauce,
  • White meats (Veal, poultry, rabbit) with creamy sauce, some “ris de veau”
  • Sautéed or half-cooked Foie Gras
  • “Boudin blanc truffé”…
  • Cheeses with “pâte dure” like Comté (24 or 36 months, old Dutch cheese…)

This wine, very pleasant already, will favorably evolve over 10 years minimum.
