A more refined weird wine

I’ve had a bit of Eric Morgat Savennieres recently, I quite liked them. However, I think this is a bit better.

Savennieres Clos du Papillon 2000, Domaine des Baumards

Deep yellow colour, not the orange of Morgat. It is very soily and mineral, with the merest hint of elder flower fruit and wet wool. There is a richness and weight to the nose. It is very refined on the palate. Elegant and balanced with good acidity and minerality. It is quite clean despite its copious minerality/weirdness. The finish is very long. Good complexity, good style, good.
