Domaine THIBAUD BOUDIGNON Savennieres "Clos de Fremine" 2021

Wine Region: Loire Valley - France

Grape: Chenin Blanc

Tasting notes:The 2021 Savennières Clos de Frémine opens with aromas of pear, rose, green mango, ripe orchard fruits and spring flowers. It is a full-bodied, intense and bright wine with a chiseled, crystalline, elegantly tense palate. The flinty structuring extract adds a unique character to the wine, and its pure minerality is impressive. Hide bottles for seven to eight years and enjoy over the following decades. - The Wine Advocate, Yohan Castaing

About the winery:
Originally from Bordeaux, Thibaud Boudignon is one of the most exciting new producers in the Loire Valley. Thibaud honed his winemaking craft while working at Philippe Charlopin in Gevrey-Chambertin during the early 2000s. He was shortly thereafter hired by Savennieres producer Chateau Soucherie to be their winemaker in the late 2000s, where he implemented the organic practice. In 2009, Thibaud began to make wine under his own name from just over 2 hectares of vines in Anjou and approximately 1 hectare of vines in Savennieres, where he planted several prime parcels, including a parcel which borders Baumard Clos St Yves vineyard (not far from the famous La Roche-aux-Moines vineyard).
