pithon-paille-savennieres-schistes-2011

Imported by Aline Wines, San Diego CA.

Five years on.

Chenin Blanc from the slate soils of Savennières in Anjou. Raised for 10 months in neutral barrel. Organic/BIO.

Gilded color.  Liqueur of slate on the nose and there are certain honeys where you smell the meadows and the fields. Linseed oil, snuffed-candle, yellow apple. With a goose-flesh tingle and the finish is a conjuring of minerality.  Now.
