Forges, Savennières, Clos du Papillon, 2019

From the family's three Savennières, this year we chose the Clos du Papillon, from a celebrated south and south-east facing vineyard shared only by Closel and Baumard. Here there's sand and clay sprinkled with varied volcanic stones and plenty of schist. That favourable exposure, 30-45 year old vines, a hot summer and careful picking in successive passes through the vines have delivered a really ripe and powerful example.

Our favourite wine merchant never fails to delight. Delicious wines at every price point - including a few gems below £10 in our favourites list. We’ve really enjoyed the sun case as an easy way to be introduced to new wines which we’ve then reordered. Friendly informative service completes the package.
