Domaine Belargus is an organic operation and has recently begun implementing
biodynamic practices under the helm of Jo Pithon and Guy Bossard. The Gaudrets
cuvee is a representation of four plots high up in Savennieres, a special
spot due to its combination of schist, sand and shale. This somehow crosses over
into the wine; it's pure minerality, a touch abrasive in terms
of reduction that can be balanced out with a bit of air time, in
either decanter or a generous shake of the bottle. Expect big minerals with
delicate white fruit and floral vibes.
