"Complex, compelling aromas with apple and quince characters. On the palate, oak is elegantly integrated with ripe stone fruit and fresh citrus flavours. The finish is long and spicy. There is great ageing potential here."
97 Points / Platinum - Decanter World Wine Awards, 2022
"So ripe, yet so fresh, this has a stunning sliced-pear, lemon and fresh-herb nose that reveals new nuances with each swirl of the glass! At once concentrated, yet so elegant, it shows why this small appellation has become a cult. And you really can’t taste the 14% alcohol at the very long, focused finish. Rather, the delicate mineral and herb notes dominate. From organically grown grapes."

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.
