From older vines on schist and phtanite soils, the golden 2012 Savennières Le Bel Ouvrage offers a very deep, intense yet pure, precise, fresh and complex aroma on the nose added by some hints of speck. Full-bodied and rich on the palate this noble and polished Chenin blanc (which fermented in tank but aged in barrel for at least 12 months plus tank for another 6 months before bottling) is very intense, elegant and well balanced and develops an impressive sweet, dense, profound and persistent taste of cooked and ultra-ripe mangos, quinces, peaches and apricot chutney with ginger and honey – a composition which indicates the full ripeness of the manually selected berries and the generosity of this Savennières. With a salty, complex and very long finish this is an impressive wine indeed. - Stephan Reinhardt

Exhibits a lush edge, with mango, creamed apple and melon notes, showing good zip. The fennel, quinine, honeysuckle and ginger notes add range through the finish. A strong effort for the vintage. Drink now through 2015... Exhibits a lush edge, with mango, creamed apple and melon notes, showing good zip. The fennel, quinine, honeysuckle and ginger notes add range through the finish.
