Savennières-Roche aux Moines, Domaine aux Moines 1998

£19.95

The estate was founded in 1981, though there are records of vineyards planted in the region since the middle ages when the monks (“moines” in French) from the Abbaye de St Nicolas tended vines in the area. It is now run by the energetic mother and daughter team of Monique and Tessa Laroche. The estate comprises 9.6 Ha of Chenin Blanc and .8 Ha Cabernet Franc. The vineyards are all south and southwest facing hillsides and abut the famed Coulee de Serrant in the sub-appellation of “Roche Aux Moines”. Certified organic practice in 2008. The family did 7 triage passes thru the vineyard in 1992 to ensure the highest quality of fruit. The nose is dominated by aromas of pineapple and papaya and the palate is full of exotic spices like saffron and all spice.
