The wine is a blend of wines made by three highly reputed local growers, Vincent Ogereau, Yves Guégniard and Claude Papin, who all own vines in this walled vineyard. The result is a wine that is a distillation of the minerality and richness of Savennières. It is dry although it has just a touch of honey as well as spicy almond and pineapple fruit flavors. The wine should age, so drink from 2019.
