This Savennières is produced from the younger Chenin vines of the estate. With an average age of 20 years and planted in soils that are mainly schist (shale) with some clay, sand and quartz, the vines are the result of the selection massale process, whereby the cuttings are selected from the most prized vines in the vineyards to replant. Yields run 30-35 hl/hectare where 50hl are allowed in the appellation. Only indigenous yeasts are used and the wine is aged in both neutral oak barrels and vats.

Nicolas Joly Description

Joel B Payne writes: "If any producer has reached mythical status on the Loire, it is certainly Nicolas Joly. He is known to many, even to those who have never tasted a single glass of his wine, as the leading latter-day partisan of Rudolf Steiner’s agricultural philosophy. Given that he produces only 40,000 bottles from their 15 hectares of vineyard, it is not surprising that many wine lovers may never have even seen one." *Biodynamic*

Vinous, July 2020

Deep yellow. Fruity, broad, supple, and very aromatic. Pear, quince, almond blossom, and lanolin. Full-bodied and powerful, with lots of spiced pear, nutmeg, peach skin, and melon. -- Jason Wilson

Wine Spectator, November 2020

There's a slight spritz to this at first, which blows off to reveal a relatively big version, superexpressive and balanced, showing exotic notes of shaved ginger and coriander, followed by a mix of candied pear, baked apple and dough flavors. This reaches a peak toward the end, when the acidity pierces through, bringing back the energy, while sea salt accents marks the finish. Drink now through 2031. 2,083 cases made, 200 cases imported. — AZ
