Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and crisp
Bright and luminous lemon-yellow colour. Nose still a little austere which should open up but frank, nervous with fresh citrus fruit, passion fruit and mineral notes almost chalky. Nice balance on a dry and nervous wine, frank, with a nice finesse. The character is sharp with aromas of white flowers, acacia, notes of citrus fruit then a hint of menthol. Beautiful straightforward and tense length, young.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Do you know ?
The wines are vinified in a former 12th century church! Unique in France.
Domain and appellation
Located on the heights of Epiré, Château d'Epiré has been passed down from father to son since 1882. It is the oldest family estate in the Savennières appellation. The vineyard of a dozen hectares is located on the highest slopes of the Savennières appellation, in the village of Epiré. The vines are grown in ideal conditions: overlooking the Loire, the vineyard takes full advantage of the south-east exposure on schistous soil.
East on schistous soil. The wines are aged on lees in small stainless steel vats. The cellar is ideally located in a charming Roman church from the 12th century that was converted into a cellar in 1906. This church is an ideal place for wine where the temperature and humidity are naturally controlled at all times of the year thanks to the thick walls.
