"This opulent white is 100% chenin blanc from a group of land parcels shaped like a butterfly (papillon) above the village of Savennières. The wine is voluminous and complex, with nuances of quince, fuji apple and vanilla cream. Ideal with a cheese course, I recommend a slice of Comté or Crottin de Chavignol."
