2009 SAVENNIERES, Patrick Baudouin. Loire Valley, France

Bin:  270

Alcohol percentage:  14%

Organic

Area:

Savennières is in the heart of the Anjou region, not far from Vouvray, and has the reputation for producing the Loire’s most concentrated and longest-lived DRY whites

Grape variety:

100% Chenin Blanc, 35 year old vines, aged for 10 months in barrel, half the wood new

Producer:

Patrick Baudouin farms just 13 hectares, 10 of Chenin and 3.5 of Cabernet Franc. This plot of Savennieres is just 1.5 hectares

Maturity potential:

Will improve to at least 2016, probably much longer (I only hesitate as the estate is so new)

Old Bridge rating:

This is a concentrated wine (yields were 30 hl/ha, about half the permitted maximum). Still young, with citrus dominating, but clearly has the potential to age well

Food match:

Patrick recommends river fish in butter sauce
