Château d'Épiré

2015 Savennières “Cuvée Spéciale” Château d'Épiré - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

   $30.00

ADD

Epiré launched their Cuvée Spéciale in 1984, when Kermit begged them to keep some of their old demi-muids for an exclusive U.S. bottling that would effectively keep alive the vanishing tradition of aging Savennières in wood. So here it is, folks—Chenin Blanc grown on schist from the estate’s best vineyards, aged in a medley of neutral 550-liter chestnut and acacia barrels, bottled unfiltered. It has ample body, nerve, and plenty of length on the palate, with suggestions of fractured stone and nuts—that’s terroir and tradition in one tasty bottle.
