The vines for this cuvee are located between Clos du Papillon and the Roche aux Moines slope of Savennieres. Shows pristine purity and great depth of fruit. Bottled under stelvin-luxe and just starting to show some development with hints of honey and grilled nuts. Outstanding drinking - and value.
”The yield here was around 35 hl/ha on average. This vintage has a lightly yellow-golden hue. There is an appealing nose here, it now having opened and evolved, revealing a fine minerally character within. The palate feels very dry and a little austere still at the start, with a fuller substance rounding it out in the mid-palate. Broad and rich, lightly grippy. This is an impressive wine for the vintage. 16/20” thewinedoctor.com, February 2013
