Shared Notes'Les Leçons des Maîtres' Sauvignon Blanc 2020- Special Priced 3-Pack
We’re excited to offer this exciting Sauvignon Blanc once again, brought to us by husband-and-wife team, Jeff Pisoni and Bibiana González Rave. They chose to make Sauvignon Blanc together because neither had worked on producing it for their own wineries (Pahlmeyer, Wayfarer, Pisoni) and they loved the idea of producing two distinctly different Sauvignon Blancs. The Les leçons des maîtres (or Lessons from the Masters) is a take on the great White Bordeauxs and after tasting it, it is an incredible effort. They also produce a Loire Valley-style Sauvignon Blanc. This 2020 is comprised of Sauvignon Blanc with 28% Semillon and is a tribute to the legendary Bordeaux blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, with the idea that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. “Incredibly bright notes of Key lime, crisp pear, and grapefruit are enveloped with generous, rich aromas of honeysuckle and juicy white peach. As this wine coats the palate, flavors of nectarine and citrus zest are given added volume and supple texture through the inclusion of Semillon and the wines extended lees contact in new French oak barrels. Though a true delight when consumed in its infancy, the lessons of these masters will surely continue to evolve and mature well into the next decade.” 165 cases were produced.
