White wine. Savennières, Loire Valley, France. Organic. 100% Chenin Blanc. "To my palate, no one makes finer Savennières these days than Eric Morgat. He only started his own domaine here in 1995, piecing together parcels in great terroirs in the appellation that had been abandoned and nursing them back to life. He has farmed organically since 2007 and has been certified biodynamic since 2012. His 2015 Savennières 'Fidès' is starting to blossom beautifully, offering up a pure and complex bouquet of sweet quince, a touch of pineapple, chalky soil tones, lanolin, bee pollen, citrus peel and white lilies. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with beautiful transparency down to the soil, bright, zesty acids and great focus and grip on the long, complex and perfectly balanced finish. At four years of age, this wine is just starting to emerge from its adolescence and is entering a plateau where it is going to drink magnificently for a couple of decades. Fine, fine juice!" — 93 Points, John Gilman, The View From The Cellar #83 (Sept. 2019)
