2016 Savennières Le Bel Ouvrage, Damien Laureau
This parcel is one of Damien’s most prized sites, with rhyolite soil (he is very precise when it comes to describing the geology here) that is a “hot” soil, giving greater maturity than the schist soils across most of the appellation where tension is the signature. This is rich, creamy, supple, peachy, and structured. With a few years in bottle this wine is hitting its stride. Apricots and mango are intensely entwined with the punchy acidity, giving this wine dramatic drive.
