Pithon-Paillé, Savennières 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.

Golden yellow.  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.
