I have now gone through a few producers across the Savennières appellation, including Château d’Épiré and Nicolas Joly. Most are not quaffing wines. They require patience and can be quite austere at first. It’s not common to require white wines to “open up” but some of these do.
I would be interested on hearing from members of the community their experiences on this appellation and any indications on which other producers to try. Thanks in advance!
