This screw-top bottling is undoubtedly the "entry level" Savennieres from this top Loire Valley producer, but it is delicious and a great bargain. Straight from the refrigerator, it has a wonderful flinty, mineral-laden feel with notes of white peach and pear. Tingling acidity perfectly sets it off. As the wine warms, the stone fruit flavors come to the fore. - HK 2020-04-18
