Savennieres is potentially one of France's greatest whites, certainly a candidate for its best dry, and not so dry, Chenin Blancs. Its reputation was built on highly mineral, pleasantly bitter, full-bodied wines that have decades of cellar potential. Damien Laureau was part of the new wave of producers 15 years ago, but now firmly part of the establishment, and although his production is pretty small, his reputation is large and formidable. Les Genets is the first of his three Savennieres and the most approachable in its youth. Full, flamboyant and satisfyingly rich, but with the rapier-like acidity as part of its DNA.
