Savennieres 'Les Fougerais', Thibaud Boudignon, Loire, France 2016

42.00

While debates continue about whether it’s justifiable to award a wine 100 points (and you’d be surprised how garrulous the wine trade can be on this matter), we struggle to see how this wine could possibly be improved and, for that reason, think it might be a ‘perfect’ wine.

From the lieu-dit of Les Fougerais in the heart of Savennières, near La Roche aux Moines and La Coulée de Serrant; 46 year-old vines planted at 8,000 vines/ha on shallow soils of grey schist and rhyolite. Native yeast fermented in wood including some 300 litre cigares, used to build lees complexity. Maturation in these and 600 litre demi-muids (30% new) for 15–18 months.
