Château d'Epiré 2013 - Savennières

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

I am really glad to present you Château d’Epiré as I think it is the best way to discover one of the best appellations in the Loire Valley for white wines: Savennières. The smell is expressive, with flavours of green apple and lemon. The taste is fresh and the finish displays displays very nice mineral aromas, typical from Savennières. Do not forget to serve it chilled, between 8 and 10°C! 

 

Terroir

Savennières’reputation comes from its dry white wines, often called the « Grands Crus » of the Loire Valley. The terroir of Savennières is located in a microclimate that offers the benefits of not having too many thunderstorms. Thus, the grapes mature faster and better than around the appellation.

lecepage Grape variety

In Savennières, things are simple as there is only one variety planted: chenin. This variety fully expresses its potential on grounds of limestone, which was also used to build the Châteaux de la Loire. Just remember that chenin is an elegant variety with refined aromas of tree fruits, dried fruits, citrus fruits, white flowers and even honey. Sounds good, doesn’t it ?

lemillesime Vintage

2013 was a very difficult vintage in the Loire Valley. The weather was constantly cold and cloudy. Thus, the grapes were not maturing fast enough. But Château d’Epiré was saved for two reasons: first, the microclimate of Savennières is always sunnier and warmer than elsewhere in the Loire Valley; And second, chenin is a variety that matures fast and therefore had reached a perfect concentration when the time of the harvest came. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Many people in the Savennières area consider the Château d’Epiré an historical treasure. Indeed, it is the only vineyard that has remained in the same family, the Bizard family, since the 17th Century. Nowadays, it is Luc who manages the vineyard with the will of giving to his wines the mineral aromas typical from Savennières and to perpetuate the family traditions.
