Notes from Polaner Selections:

"The estate was founded in 1981, though there are records of vineyards planted in the region since the middle ages when the monks (“moines” in French) from the Abbaye de St Nicolas tended vines in the area. It was founded by the Madame Monique Laroche, a true force of nature, and is now run by her energetic daughter Tessa Laroche. The estate comprises 12 hectares of Chenin Blanc planted on south and southwest facing hillsides that abut the famed Coulee de Serrant in the Savennières sub-appellation of "Roche Aux Moines".

Her 2019 version comes in at fourteen percent octane and offers up a ripe and vibrant bouquet of apple, quince, a hint of tangerine, salty soil tones, citrus peel and a topnote of dried flowers. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with excellent soil signature and cut, zesty acids and a long, complex and very nicely balanced finish. This is an excellent bottle of Savennières."
