Loic Mahé 'Equilibre' - AOC Savennières 2015
Decomposing blue and red schist with very little top soil
2 years in old oak barrels, and a further year in tank, en masse
White florals, confit fruits, brioche, apple strudel, pine resin
Fine, long, intense, almost tannic mouthfeel, complex and balanced
“Is this not a Grand Vin de Meursault !” said one companion, tasting it blind. This wine certainly has no reason to hide from any lineup of the world’s greatest white wines.
