Domaine aux Moines, 2019 Update

I am glad to report that, on the basis of this most recent encounter with her wines, the revolution begun by Tessa Laroche at Domaine aux Moines continues unabated. And this is a very special revolution, one which saw a domaine turning out rather ordinary examples of Savennières, very much in the old-school style, leapfrog to the top tier of this very prestigious appellation. For my palate, this is now one of the go-to domaines in the appellation, alongside Damien Laureau and the newly reinvented wines of Eric Morgat.
