Domaine du Closel-Château des Vaults Clos du Papillon Savennières Chenin Blanc 2010

$36.99

Clos Papillon is one of the classic terroirs of Savenierres and this is perhaps the best way to delve into the pleasures of this appellation. This is just coming into maturity, displaying a gorgeous golden color; a rich honeyed texture; and layer upon layer of complex, earthy, orchard fruit and savory mineral flavors. One of the most profound and pleasurable bottles of Chenin Blanc in the world.

Sacrifices some depth for brightness. Prefer @Baumard's version.

Elegantly oxidative. Character grows and grows with time. With Squid a la Plancha and Squid Ink Tagliatelle.

Delightful, complex and well balanced, I was impressed with how white fruit and mineraility added a nimble quality that complemented the honeyed richness that can make young Savennieres from ripe years a little ponderous.

CVed 1/24/18. Nice golden color. Straw, white fruit, quince, chalk, minerals on nose. Acidic balanced medium body firm texture and intensity on palate with a good long finish. Would be great food wine. Gordon's back then $28 and good value.
