2014 Domaine des Garennes Empreinte Blanc, Saumur, Loire Valley
€10, 13, From the domaine
Tasted at: August Sample Tasting
Youthful, pithy and still quite tight, this barrel-fermented Chenin needs more time in bottle to show what it's really capable of. Apple, citrus and pear flavours are complemented by stony minerality, some vanilla spice and a tangy, focused finish.
