Thibaud Boudignon Savennières Le Clos de Frémine 2018
'Located just below the wall of "Clos de la Hutte", this parcel of 1.5 hectares is in the commune of La Possonnière. Exposed to the landscape and gently sloping down towards the Loire river, the "Clos de Fremine" is a soil of schist sandstone to gritty sandstone. The "Clos de Frémine" is aged in demi muids of 500L and 600L to preserve the finesse of the terroir. This is the most delicate and aromatic expression of Chenin from the domaine. Very feminine in its texture and in the nose, it offers a seductive, mouth watering palate sensation. This sandy, schisty, gravelly soil expresses itself more on finesse. A nose of mandarine, a mouth with a fine mineral bitterness on a background of fresh grapes, citrus, combining elegance and strength, just a slight touch of richness to dress the mineral signature. Very limited.'
