Please note, this wine is on presale, and is set to arrive at the end of the week.
Please note, orders are processed on a first come basis. If you leave the wine in your cart for even a few minutes it might have already sold out as our stock quantity is removed when you submit the order in final, not when you add it to your cart!
You will get two emails from us with regards to your order. The first email from us only confirms that we received your order. The second email will confirm that we have enough wine to fill your order. Due to the high volume of sales there are times when the wine has sold out, but our system is still updating and shows it as available. We're sorry for any inconvenience and will do what we can to fill your order!

92 Pts Wine Spectator
"Alluring aromas of ginger and creamed Jonagold apple are followed by a lush yet invigorating palate of melon, chamomile, quince and fig, all backed by a long, heather honey-tinged finish. Ripe but very precise, with more zip and length than the Le Bel Ouvrage. Drink now through 2015. 100 cases imported. - JM" (09/10)
"Pure chenin blanc from some of the highest vines in the appellation. Aged for 18 months in a combination of tank (80%) and barrel (20%). Lively, mineral-filled, and delicious Savennieres that shows off its schisty and volcanic rock terroir." - Importer
"Working out of a small shed with a very small team, Damien Laureau is not exactly what one would call a "typical" Savennieres winemaker. Fruit extracts and other non-synthetic treatments are used on the vines in place of harsh chemicals, and quite frankly, you can tell it just by looking at the vineyards. They feel alive, with wildlife and indigenous plants sharing the space with Damienâs healthy vines of Chenin Blanc. Damien, along with a few other young growers, is starting to experiment with harvesting just when the grapes turn yellow (instead of the traditional Savennieres "green grapes") to take advantage of the richness that the sun brings."
"At the same time, he is careful not to pick too late as he wants to avoid a high level of botrytis in the harvest. As a result, the wines are a beautiful balance of richness, concentration, lively acidity, and length. Yields are quite low (an average of 35 hl/ha is quite common while most harvest at around 50 hl/ha.) Called "Undoubtedly the future star of Savennieres" by France's "La Revue de Vin de France", Damien is quietly carving out his own style with some of the most extraordinary terroir in the world. These are world class white wines." - Importer
