2018 Savennières Clos du Papillon, Domaine du Closel

This is the flagship wine of the estate, and the 2018 is a magnificent example. There is such sweet purity to the apple blossom and orchard fruit aroma. On the palate this is exquisitely long and fine; this should age with grace, increasing in complexity as the years go by.

2018 Savennières Clos du Papillon, Domaine du Closel
Domaine du Closel

Evelyne de Pontbriand is one of the wine world’s most charming characters. Having initially trained as a teacher, she took control of the family domaine following her mother’s retirement in the early 2000s and has since moved the estate towards organic viticulture. Her mother was president of the appellation, a role that Evelyne herself has since taken on. These are classic, benchmark Savennières; wines that demonstrate their maker’s charm and commitment to quality.
