This Savagnin is from a parcel of heavy limestone, with the addition of dense fossil concentration. The vines were planted in 2012.  Fruit is picked by hand. The grapes are pressed into neutral barrique, where they age for about 2 years. The tasting note from our supplier describes the Savagnin Aux Bois as a "pristine, powerful wine with a strong mineral core supported by tropical fruits and citrus." There is no added SO2 to this bottling from Marnes Blanches. The wine is a pretty lemon on the nose. Half an hour into opening, the wine is bitter lemon, herbs, and unripe yellow apples on the palate. The nose is lemon meringue and salt. In the end, the palate fattens up. I've realized, the whites of this producer are obviously good... and the reds are mysteriously good. Drink them both, one for real joy, and the other for an intriguing, satisfying puzzle.
