Domaine THIBAUD BOUDIGNON Savennieres "Clos de Fremine" 2019
Wine Region: Loire Valley - France
Grape: Chenin Blanc
Tasting notes: Clos de Fremine captivates with its nose on subtle mandarin and quince notes, enhanced with a noble woodiness. Delicate, round palate, which then delivers wonderful bitters and a background of fresh grapes, chiselled citrus fruits, all with the great precision that marks the wines of Thibaud Boudignon.
About the winery: Originally from Bordeaux, Thibaud Boudignon is one of the most exciting new producers in the Loire Valley. Thibaud honed his winemaking craft while working at Philippe Charlopin in Gevrey-Chambertin during the early 2000s. He was shortly thereafter hired by Savennieres producer Chateau Soucherie to be their winemaker in the late 2000s, where he implemented the organic practice. In 2009, Thibaud began to make wine under his own name from just over 2 hectares of vines in Anjou and approximately 1 hectare of vines in Savennieres, where he planted several prime parcels, including a parcel which borders Baumard Clos St Yves vineyard (not far from the famous La Roche-aux-Moines vineyard).
