Overview

From vineyards clustered around the Moulin de Beaupréau at the far northern edge of the appellation, Damien sources the fruit for his Savennière Les Genêts. This is a light sandy terroir of schist and phtanite making for a more approachable style of Savennière. It is aged in 400L French oak barrels for 12 months then 4-6 months in tank before bottling.
