Nicolas Joly, Savennières ‘Les Vieux Clos’ 2011

Domaine Select Wine Estates, New York NY.

Yellow-gold.  Soils here are mostly schist intermixed with quartz and sand and for the Jolys ‘vin naturel’ is an old rodeo.  Bruised yellow apple, honeyed tea, roasted nuts and well water.  Robust and firm with torque and drive.  Salted butter farewell.  Now.
