So light I almost forgot to taste it. Glad I did, beautiful wine. It’s such a nice combo or the Pinots and blended so well. Lavender and hibiscus with a bright red fruit nose. Strawberries are most pronounced though I’m enjoying blood orange and cranberry too. Really a great bottle that went too quickly. — 4 days ago
Another 2016 white burg that has really come around. It notably gains in focus and precision in the decanter, in contrast to the vintage. There’s a killer combination of textural richness, concentration and yellow fruit intensity that’s seamlessly balanced by chiseled lemony acids, a refreshing sea spray-like salinity and a long chalky mineral inflicted finish. Sebastian Caillat is crushing it in Chassagne. — 23 days ago
Nose has under-ripe peach, lemon zest, cold chalk and wet beach sand.
Palate has pineapple core, dried lemon, sea spray and dehydrated peach.
Nice balanced acidity, no real herbal notes to speak of, a different expression than the traditional style. This wine should have a long life ahead, drink 2024-31.
The inaugural, single vineyard Sauvignon Blanc for Saracina from the Lolonis Vineyard; possibly some of the oldest SB vines in the US, planted in 1942.
