Tasting notes Savennières Clos Brochard
Full, complex dry white wine with a refined aroma of ripe yellow fruit, peach and nuances of almond and caramel. The taste is strong, persistent and ends with a balanced, fresh aftertaste.
Sylvie Plessis makes beautiful wines from the chenin grape with her husband Christian in the small appellation Savennières. The couple owns 7 hectares of hillside vineyard, planted on the south with a substrate of different types of slate. The chenin grape is harvested here late and by hand, only from October onwards and in several times so that only the ripest grapes are picked. The careful vinification of Sylvie delivers precise and pure wines with a fantastic terroir and grape expression. Chenin of this level belongs to the great white wines of France and can, if desired, mature for a long time so that a great flavor complexity can develop. The Clos Brochard comes from a special terrace vineyard with a low yield. This full, particularly fine wine can be drunk young by the picking of very ripe grapes, for example with grilled salmon or veal.
