Domaine Laffourcade, Savennières 2011, Loire, France
Tasting Note: A Savennières that shows chenin blanc’s serious side.
Pale-intensity lemon in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of butterscotch, white peach, stewed apple, lemon curd, cantaloupe and honey.
On the palate the dry, full-bodied chenin blanc has medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and completing with a medium-plus finish.
Midpalate complexity combines with concentration in this grown-up chenin blanc.
