Peter Maude Fine Wines

2018, Domaine du Pélican, Savagnin, 'Macération Pelliculaire'


The 2018 Savagnin Macération Pélliculaire is outrageously beautiful. A short time of maceration on the skins give its tannins and overall, structure. More like a red wine. Candied orange peel, hazelnut, sage, mint, liquorice and dried flowers are some of the many notes that infuse the 2018 with layers of depth. The 2018 is a showstopper. That's all there is to it. 94 Antonio Galloni, Vinous (2020).

There is also an orange wine. The skin-contact 2018 Arbois Savagnin Macération Pelliculaire is a golden coloured and exotic white with notes of mango and papaya notes. It almost feels like a sweet wine. The palate is dry and has a bittersweet finish, where the tannins from the skins are clearly noticeable. 88 Luis Guiti?rrez, Wine Advocate (2021).

Drinking Window: 2020 - 2028
