2006 Savennières Clos Du Papillon, Domaine Des Baumard

I sourced some nice pike perch fillets today and made this dish, with grilled asparagus, carrots and shiitake mushrooms, an aspagarus hollandaise and deep fried salmon balls.

I fancied a leaner, intense kind of wine with a high acidity and found this bottle.

2006 Savennières Clos du Papillon, Domaine des Baumard
A cristallin, deep, intense nose with notes of green tea, wet concrete, candied lemon peels, white currants and hay. Complex and fine.
The taste dances over the tongue with a fine mix of lemons, rubber, green tea and minerals. Long and fine. A fine, piercing acidity. Almost a flor-like feeling in the finish. Very, very good.
