Domaine de La Loue "Cuvee Raphaelle" Savagnin 2019
- In stock, ready to ship
Savagnin from a single, southeast-facing vineyard in Arbois-Pupillin on gray marl soils. Two weeks of maceration on the skins. Enchanting, pretty aromas of pineapple and fresh flowers. On the palate you can detect a healthy, ripe core of fruit, and with it comes notes of spicy Bosc pear and fresh ginger. It's able to maintain an impressive balance between the nervy, electric acids and the round, fruity components, finishing with just a bit of mineral, salty texture. Overall this is an engaging mix of heady complexity and Epicurean indulgence, leaning towards the playful, pleasing side of things.
