2019 Savennieres L'Alliance, Damien Laureau
This is a new cuvée in 2019 made from young vines across three parcels, all of which Damien has planted himself. They have all been pruned in the goblet fashion, which encourages small bunches to ripen: Damien is seeking an intensity of flavour. This wine has a lovely white fruit, floral character in its maiden vintage. It has Savennières’s structure, but with some pretty fruit, meaning it avoids seeming austere in its youth.
