CASON: Savennières "Fides"

*****

An assemblage of 4 of the most beautiful terroirs in Savennieres, mostly on schist.  There is the 0.4ha of “Roches aux Moines”, a hill of green schist and one of the greatest terroirs of Savennieres, long considered a Cru.  In the 1.3ha “Le Clos Ferrard”, Morgat has planted a "nursery" of 37 ancient varieties of Chenin Blanc.  In the 1ha “La Pierre Bécherelle” parcelle, Morgat revived this exceptional sandstone schist vineyard, enclosed by ancient crumbling walls, that lay fallow for 70 years in what he calls an act of madness and discovery.  In the 2ha “L’Enclos” vineyard (the first he planted) there are 3 distinct sections in this parcel that Morgat harvests and vinifies separately before the final blending.  Fidès harkens back to a noble, monastic austerity.  Powerful, rich, almost tannic, this enormous effort is also graced with a hint of a lovely prolonged saline bitterness.
