2018 Savennières La Jalousie, Domaine du Closel

This comes from various parcels of younger vines, aged around 20 years old. The name is a tongue-in-cheek nod to a dispute many years back with a neighbouring vigneron. In Savennières, the vignerons have a wicked sense of humour as well as great pride in their appellation. The grapes are picked at the beginning of harvest, and there is a pithy, almost spicy, salty tang to the dry but juicy palate. It has a floral elegance and its vibrant freshness makes it so delicious to drink right now. Precise, with plush fruit, and seriously refreshing.

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.
