Meet the CoolVines Wine Geek! He’ll guide you toward – or away from! – wines that have a unique flavor profile: intentionally oxidized wines, earthy, stinky wines, wines with a bit of fritz on the tongue. Look for him throughout our web site, and on the shelves in our stores, to point the way toward these geeky wines.
Classic Savennières nose with delicate mineral notes. Soft and gentle on the palate with hints of orchard fruits and honey. Try decanting this wine to see how it evolves over time. A versatile food wine, it would be a match with goat cheese or sea bass.

Mathieu Tijou, son of Pierre-Yves and Brigitte, established his domaine at Eperonniere and launched his career as independent vigneron with the 2007 vintage.
