Savennieres


See Savennieres producers See map

Savennieres is a tiny white Anjou appellation (comprising Savennieres, Savennieres-Coulée de Serrant, and Savennieres-Roche aux Moines) revered for its dry full-bodied Chenin Blanc wines, grown on the ancient schistous/volcanic soils on the southern banks of the Loire. The best are hand-harvested by ‘trie’ (often with a degree of so of noble rot) before being pressed and aged in oak barrels. Dme du Closel is a good source.
