This wine is a steal at $14.99 - thank you, K&L. I absolutely love Savennières, which comes from the Chenin Blanc region of the Loire Valley, and this is a wonderful example, especially at this price point. Honeyed peach and pear fruit along with notes of smoke, straw, and white flowers. Its youthful steeliness has softened nicely at age 5, though I'm sure this wine will continue to age for a few more years. Rich yet elegant, pure, and precise-feeling in the mouth and finish. Sensational food wine. - HK 2011-09-16
