Savennières “Clos de la Hutte”

From the lieu-dit of Clos de la Hutte in the hamlet of La Possonnière, this is a newly replanted vineyard growing on solid schist, with not more than 30cm of sandy topsoil above the bedrock. Native yeast fermented in wood including some 300l cigares, used to build lees complexity. Maturation in these and 600l demi-muids (30% new) for 15–18 months.

  • GRAPE: 100% Chenin Blanc

    TASTE PROFILE: The newest addition to Thibaud’s range of Chenin Blanc comes from a half hectare plot within the Clos de la Hutte (1.5ha) lieu-dit. The vines are young, and the volumes miniscule, with only 1000 bottles released. Expect greatness, and even greater things to come from this Loire white.
