Savennières is renowned for making the finest dry Chenin Blanc in the world with incredible nerve and energy. The small appellation of just 145 hectares is situated south west of Angers on the north bank of the Loire river on a mixture of schist, clay and slate. The estate was created in 2007 when Philippe Fournier united two existing estates. The “Chamboureau” cuvée comes from the vines that used to belong to Château de Chamboureau. Since the takeover the vineyards are now organic, yields have dropped significantly to around 25hl/ha and during harvest the number of “passages” through the vines has increased and all the grapes are hand harvested.

La Croix Picot is from a mixture of their clay and schist vineyards. The wine is aged for 12 months in oak barrels and aged further for 6 months on its fine lees in large oak vats.
