An expert's opinion

Oz Clarke's favourite wine from our selection: "Wow! Savennières is one of the Loire Valley's most fabled appellations and this delicious example shows you why"

Once again I have been seduced by this Savennières from Domaine FL. One of the French appellations that expresses the Chenin Blanc grape to its fullest extent! This cuvée, "Croix Picot", offers all the structure and aromas that make this appellation so famous and desireable. The wine is dry but offers a sensation of both honey and minerality on the palate at the same time. With appetisers, this wine enhances the delicacy and finessse of the foods; try it with Scallops or in-season white asparagus; simply divine!

The estate

Domaine FL

This vineyard belongs to the Fournier-Longchamps family and extends from either sideof the Loire valley, making it nearly 30 hectares. We're in the regions of Savennières and Rochefort-sur-Loire. Here, the owners, and the fantastic team working around them have a very strong desire to "reveal the terroir," and therefore have created an organic wine which epitomises their commitment to biodynamic methods of production.
