We certainly raised an eyebrow when we saw the price of this Savagnin from the "other" Overnoy, who actually isn't even an Overnoy because the current winemaker is a Crinquand! But when we tasted the wine, we got it. This Savagnin comes from a .4 hectare plot of 40 year old vines, and it's a Vin Jaune that failed to come to fruition, meaning that the nose and palate are deeply redolent of voile. The palate has plenty of lip-smacking, quince-y fruit with the laser-like, abundant acidity of the 2008 vintage. With some air, the wine begins to reveal an intriguing smokiness. -msb
