Savennieres is a district on the north bank of the Loire River in the Anjou-Saumur region, across the river from Coteaux-du-Layon and its sub-appellations. The wines here are produced entirely from Chenin Blanc and are almost always dry. The region is spread over three hills marked by a prevelance of schist in the soils, and 360 acres are under vine.

Within this district there are two more precise sub-regions: Savennieres-Roche-aux-Moines with 82 acres and Savennieres-Coulee-de-Serrant with 17 acres. The latter was first planted in 1130 by Cistercian monks and is owned entirely by the Nicolas Joly estate, which is entirely biodynamic in its production methods. This single wine is, in essence, its own appellation, and labeled as Clos de Coulee de Serrant. It is on the short list for most as one of the world's greatest dry white wines.

Savennieres tends to be richer, more intense, and fuller bodied than dry Vouvray. It is relatively high in acidity and shows an incredible ability to age, making it potentially austere in youth. In certain vintages Botrytis will make an appearance and though these grapes can still, somewhat unusually, be incorporated into dry wines they will more often come with a bit of sweetness. Helpfully, when this is the case, the wines will carry the following designations: "Demi-Sec" for wines with 0.8 to 1.8% residual sugar, "Moelleux" for wines with 1.8 to 4.5% residual sugar, and "Doux" for wines with more than 4.5% residual sugar.
