Savennières 'L'Enclos', Eric Morgat 2009

White Wine from France - Loire
More due to circumstances than design (a severely reduced 2008 crop meant the normal cycle of barrel purchases was interrupted), a third of this wine was fermented in new oak but this does not overpower. A small crop was picked to include some less ripe berries for natural freshness and this shines through in the wine, balancing rich, spicy fruit. Structured rather than austere.

Loire Valley Vintage 2009

A great vintage. Healthy fruit in Muscadet produced superb quality, especially from those growers prepared to keep yields under control. Touraine Sauvignon Blanc performed similarly well, with full phenolic ripeness and very little chaptalisation requirement, if any, following almost drought-like conditions there. Yields were slightly reduced in Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé, and some July hail decimated much of Quincy, Reuilly and Coteaux du Giennois - but what was produced was excellent. Cabernet franc enjoyed a late, dry harvest to make fully ripe reds, and chenin blanc was also very promising, although botrytis was scarce.
