2018 Loïc Mahé ‘Sable & Schist’ Chenin Blanc
Savennières is one of a handful of truly exceptional appellations in the Loire Valley specifically dedicated to the Chenin Blanc variety. It certainly produces the most full-bodied and powerful.
The wines of Loïc Mahé are exceptional – ultra pure and mineral, yet always generous, not austere as the wines of Savenierres often are. They are invariably organic and additive free.
The Savenierres Sable & Schiste tastes like ripe orchard fruit, especially pears, floral notes, chestnut, honey overlaying precise mineral acidity. Glorious Chenin.
