Overview

Bel Ouvrage is made from a blend of three terroirs located in the eastern part of Savennières near the village of Épiré. These are grey schist and rhyolite terroirs including one that is adjacent to the Coulée de Serrant. More backward and slower to evolve than Les Genêts, Bel Ouvrage is aged for 12 months in neutral French oak then 11 months in tank before bottling.
