2002 Domaine aux Moines Savennières Roche aux Moines Cuvée des Nonnes Moelleux

Hey, how's that for a long title for this entry?

I've had dry versions of Savennières before, but this the first time I've tried one with noticeable residual sugar - it was definitely different from the stony, minerally ones of the past!

The color of this wine looked like a not-so-healthy urine sample - ewww. Amber, even orangeish, it matched the orange border on my box of Kashi Go Lean Crunch cereal. But in the interests of winedom I drank it anyway.

This wine was one smorgasbord of fruit. Layers of ripe, honeyed apples, peaches, bananas, you name it, it seemed like it was there, held together by enough acidity to keep it from being cloying. The fruit was intense in this wine and it would make a great dessert.

$19.83 from Garagiste and most definitely worth it - two thumbs way up on this one.
