The opinion of the sommelier

Do you know Savennières? Well, I am pleased to introduce you to this appellation with one of its best ambassadors, Château La Franchaie. This very pleasant wine, with mineral and saltyflavours, also has very small oxidative aromasthat give a subtle taste of nuts and dried fruits. This wine is very well balanced between unctuosity and alcohol, and personally I love it !  

 

Terroir

Savennières is a small appellation that lies south of Angers on the right bank of the Loire. The Château itself is located near Possonnière in the hills of the appellation. The ground is made of schist. This laminated and fractured soil gives vine roots the opportunity to penetrate seven or eight feet deep, where rainwater naturally flows and where it can find the best nutriments. Moreover, this kind of soil keeps a lot of warmth from the sun, which protects the vines during winter.

lecepage Grape variety

In Savennières, only one grape variety is allowed: the Chenin Blanc (also known as Pineau de la Loire). This kind of grape is mainly grown in the Loire Valley as it adapts little elsewhere in the world. White wines from Anjou (including Savennières) are mainly made from that variety. In Montlouis and Vouvray, winemakers make all kinds of white wines, from dry sparkling to sweet wines using.

lemillesime Vintage

2007 was a good year in Savennières. The weather was all year long well balanced, alternating sun and rain. The spring started with a lot of rain, which was quite rough on the winemakers but gave plenty of nutriments to the vine. Then the summer was very sunny, quickly bringing the grapes to maturity. 

lerecoltant The Winemaker

Loïc Mahe produces a wine that reflects what nature has to offer in this region. Indeed, he doesn’t want to work too much on the vines so as to let it express the terroir. He does not use chemical fertilizers, lets the grass grows as it wants in the vines, and of course, harvests the grapes by hand. His vision is just to help nature expressing itself, not giving his personality to his wine.
