La Savante or "The Scholar" in the feminine, pays homage to the scholarly women, who can be feminine and serious at the same time, like this wine.
About the Vineyard
In both La Savante and Histoire d'A we use whole clusters during fermentation to highlight the texture and graininess of the wines. La Savante has greater minerality with spicy red fruits.
Clone 115 was fermented with 20% whole clusters and indigenous yeast in Oak roll-fermentor of 600L and close 777 was fermented with 50% whole clusters and indigenous yeast in small stainless-steel tanks of 500L. Punch-down extraction was done by hand. 7-10 days of maceration with malolactic fermentation in the barrel.
Red fruit with presence of herbs such as thyme, spices, and clove. Medium-high acidity, low alcohol, slight minerality alongside integrated oak and grainy tannins.
