Domaine Du Petit Métris
Domaine du Petit Métris Savennières ‘Clos de la Marche’ 2015
France / Loire
Andy's Tasting Notes
From a very special single vineyard, this is superb, classic dry Loire Chenin Blanc – none of the oxidised funkiness or excess alcohol that some producers in this appellation seem to think is appealing!
Pure, unadulterated Chenin Blanc with minerality and laser like focus. Dry, complex and poised with hints of ripe apple, pear, marzipan and flint.
Price per bottle £16.50
Domaine du Petit Métris is a sixth-generation winery, Pascal and Hervé Renou are the current generation of owners, producing wines from 30 hectares of vineyards. With Pascal mainly in the vineyards and Hervé in the cellar, the brothers have sustained the domaine’s excellent reputation in France.
Domaine du Petit Métris favours physical intervention in the vineyard over reliance on chemical applications; canopy management includes spring pruning and de-budding as well as leaf thinning and green harvesting. The domaine has accreditation from both Vignerons Indépendants and Terra Vitis.
