About the Wine

Savennières located in the Loire Valley is a small and charming appellation that’s focused mainly on producing wines made with Chenin Blanc. This under-the-radar appellation is finally waking up the interest of major wine critics, consumers, and pros who are realizing the extraordinary potential that this region has to give.

Decanter said, quality is high to exceptional across this small appellation, and yet, it is still little known, even in France. It has a good reputation but in a very small circle.”

Domaine Fournier Longchamps (FL) is located in Rochefort sur Loire in Maine-et-Loire, very close to the Loire River and about 9 miles from the medieval town of Angers. The Domaine was founded by Philip Fournier Longchamps in 2006, and in 2009, Julien, Philip’s son took over the reins of the estate.

The estate is made up of more than 100 acres located in some of the most respected appellations in the Loire Valley like Savennières, Roche aux Moines, Anjou, Coteaux du Layon, and Chaume. Since 2009, the vineyard is managed with organic and biodynamic viticulture, wherepassion and respect for wine and terroir are key on each of the cuvées.”

2020 was a great year for the Loire Valley. Wine Spectator blessed this vintage with a 94 point review and said, "Chenin Blancs, both dry and sweet, look especially promising."

Tasting Notes: 100% Chenin Blanc. The color is straw yellow, with golden reflections. The nose is filled with fruits and quince. The palate is yellow fruits and spicy notes. This wine will impress all of your guests if you serve it with any shellfish or seafood. And, it's delicious with chevre too.

Reviews

It’s hard to find adequate words for the cornucopia of flowers, citrus and stone fruit aromas of this wine. The flinty element creates the most beautiful tension along with the wonderful interplay of fruit and wet stone minerality on the breathtakingly precise and pure medium- to full-bodied palate. And the incredibly energetic, almost endless finish sweeps you away. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold. ~98 James Suckling
