Coulée de Serrant 2008
Ce cru magique de Savennières brille à nouveau, tel un diamant. Ses lignes athlétiques n’enlèvent rien a la finesse ; la minéralisé est telle qu’on ne compte plus les secondes, tant le vin est persistant et racé. 17.5/20

2008 Clos de la Coulée de Serrant Savennières,
Light straw color, very bull-bodied with a hint of honey, extremely vibrant and intense on the palate with a strong mineral finish. A youthful, powerful beauty, like Milla Jovovich in « Resident Evil. » Delicious now but will gain many nuances over the years. Coming to these shores shortly.
2007 Clos de la Coulée de Serrant Savennières,
Talk about nectar of the gods. Think Ava Gardner in « The Barefoot Contessa. » A deep golden color, much darker than the 2008, with an unmistakable honeyed quality due to Botrytis (noble rot), candied orange, a touch of ginger and a very rich, almost syrupy texture, yet it’s ultimately a dry wine with a stony core and a long, reverberating finish.

« Savennières: Brimfire in a bottle. (…) The jewel of these famous vineyards is the Coulée de Serrant, a magnificent steep slope of Chenin Blanc vines that is clearly destined to be one of the world’s great vineyards.(…) Fortunately, from around 2006 the wines have been made by Joly’s daughter Virginie, a trained oenologist who has been turning out some stunning wines from the family estate »
