Savennières: Château d'Epiré Moelleux 2017
This wonderfully honeyed, sweet Savennières wine 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.
A bouquet of dried fruits and a gently honeyed palate. It is already irresistible but should gain even more depth with bottle-age.
