White wine. Savennières, Loire Valley, France. Organic. 100% Chenin Blanc. "Because of the severe frost damage in April in Savennières and Anjou, Monsieur Morgat only made a single, blended cuvée in 2017, of what would normally be his two separate bottlings of Savennières “fides” and his Anjou “Litus”. The wine is deep, complex and nicely soil-driven on the nose, offering up scents of quince, lemon peel, lanolin, chalky soil tones, a bit of wet wool, beeswax and white flowers. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied, complex and well- balanced, with good acids and grip, fine focus and a long, youthful and zesty finish. This has turned out quite nicely, given the brutal frost damage in the spring." — 89 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #87 (May/June 2020)
