Tasting Notes

"With almost pungent minerality and gigantic concentration, this awesome Savennieres shows how great dry whites from the chenin blanc grape can be. On paper this must have plenty of acidity, but it’s so beautifully integrated that you don’t think about it. With some aeration this develops a wonderful nose of honeysuckle. Extremely long wet-stone finish. From organically grown grapes."

The Producer

Domaine FL

When Philip Fournier Longchamps established Domaine FL by buying two estates in 2006 and 2007, he had a clear vision. Born and raised in Anjou, he and his son Julien resolved to make Savennières that could age for decades, inspired by old vintages in Philip’s father cellar.

Philip, CEO of a telecoms company, acquired and merged two estates, one on each side of the river Loire – Domaine Jo Pithion and Château de Chamboureau – building a winery in 2011 to process the fruit from the 45ha of vineyards, including 30ha in Savennières. (The other holdings are in Anjou, Coteaux-du-Layon and the grand cru Quart de Chaumes.)

The pair work organically in the vineyards, with some plots farmed biodynamically, including the parcel in Roche aux Moines. The aim is to express the terroir to its fullest potential, and consultants in the vineyard (Ludovic Pierrot from Burgundy) and winery (Kyriakos Kynigopoulos, who took over from Stéphane Derenoncourt) focus on plot-by-plot winemaking.
