2013 Château de la Mulonnière Savennières ‘L’Effet Papillon’ Duo

In the Anjou region of the Loire, along the banks of the Layon River, Savennières features soils of almost pure schist. Chenin + Schist = power, in a lean, clean, sheer tensile strength expression. This isn't the muscle of a body builder, but of a prima ballerina, its sinew masked by effortless grace. Mulonniere was founded in 1860, and owns some of the most historic vineyards in Savennières. Purchased by the Saget family in 2002, the estate was transitioned to certified sustainable agriculture, with minimal intervention winemaking. In effect, the Sagets just polished an especially beautiful gemstone. The 'effect of butterflies', indeed! It's a symphony of fruit: white peach, honeydew melon, mirabelle plum, and lime. Plus licorice, honeycomb, and herbal notes. Weighty texture, but with a lightness from bracing acidity. As breathtaking as a beautiful 'papillon'. And at a purely silly price.
