Olivier Savary is almost bashful when asked how he guaranteed his wine’s surprising vivacity during this hot vintage. “We keep the temperatures low to prolong the fermentations,” he says, referring to something not necessarily out of the ordinary for the domaine. Then, searching a bit, he proposes, “We age the wine in 25% neutral oak, the rest in stainless steel”—also typical Savary protocol for this wine. After another pause, and as if realizing it for the first time, Olivier sighs, “We didn’t really do anything too differently.” That’s what I love about our producers. They’re humble, down-to-earth people who underestimate their own magic. The Savarys “didn’t really do anything” unusual and voilà, an extraordinary result. This wine has astonishing tension and wet stone minerality to balance all the sumptuous sunshine of the 2015 vintage. –Emily Spillmann
