White wines produced around the commune of Savennières in the Loire Valley. The wines are produced from Chenin Blanc, and can be dry or sweet. Three Savennières appellations exist: two small sub-appellations (Savennières-Roche-aux-Moines and Savennières-Coulée-de-Serrant) and the more wide-spread Savennières. The vineyards are located on three schist hills on the northwest bank of the Loire river. Botrytis infection is common, leading to noble rot. This is noticeable both in the sweet and dry wines. In dry wines, it can provide complexing characters and increase mineral characters in the wine. Good Savennières wines tend to be complex, long and balanced with quince, lanolin, chamomile, honey, mineral, straw and quinine characters often noted. – Description from penguinoid
