Savennières: Château d'Epiré 'Comtesse de las Cases' Moelleux 2019

This wonderfully honeyed, sweet Savennières wine from Château d'Epiré has an alluring bouquet of stewed pears, beeswax and fleurs blanches and a ripe, rounded, terrifically textured palate of grilled nuts and orchard fruit with an underlying acidity and subtle mineral nuances.

Tasting Notes

This Savennières 'moelleux' has a bouquet of dried fruits and a gently honeyed palate. It is already irresistible but should gain even more depth with bottle-age.
