Crushed oyster shell, cool-fruited citrus and green apple, with an uncanny texture impossible to resist conjuring the legendary wines of François Raveneau. Savary is a prime example of what the region can do the very best, pushing ripeness in this frigid northernly climate to the max, while preserving the necessary tension. It is perfect with poultry and creamy cheeses.

Wine AdvocateThe 2017 Chablis Vieilles Vignes is considerably more serious, hailing from vines that average 50 years of age, with 15% of the cuvée matured in demi-muids. The wine offers up notes of green apples, lemon oil, white flowers and oystershell, followed by a medium to full-bodied palate with a textural attack, a good core of fruit and tangy balancing acids. It's a promising wine and a very creditable example of the appellation, with some of the mid-palate weight that typifies the wines of Maligny.
