Chateau D' Epire, Savennieres, Loire 2015 750ml
Clear, bright stone fruit and pear aromas jump out at first, without some of the funkier notes some Savennieres can display. There is a touch of the salty seashell note behind the fruit, somewhat similar to Muscadet, but always well behind the fruit on the nose. On the palate the fruit is almost crystalline, racy and bright with very lean lime and melon rind texture at first that gains the white fruits found in the nose as it opens up slowly. A wine that you would probably want to either plan to drink over two or more days or decant, because it does take some time to get to the complex fruit character that exists underneath.
