A brand new listing, this 2019 Savennières from Domaine des Deux Vallées is a delight. The Chenin Blanc vines for this lie in the Clos du Petit Beaupréau, where sandy loam topsoil leads to a schist base rock. Having fermented and aged in oak barrel (no new wood), the result is a top level Chenin, which combines powerful concentration, taut structure and finesse. Very pale gold colour, the nose is lifted and taut, with notes of freshly baked apple tart and honeysuckle. Palate is full bodied, intricately structured and has superb concentration of fruit and mineral flavours. The finish is incredibly fresh and vibrant (for drinking 2021-2024+).
