Sauvignon Blanc

Morgan

Monterey Sauvignon Blanc 2016

The pale golden wine shows the oak fairly well, and offers a nose that shows an earthy twist on the expected grassiness. In fact, most Cali SauvBlancs I find are rather fruity smelling. This one has plenty of character. The mouthfeel is quite weighty for the variety, and has savory edges which frame the fruit perfectly. This is not a simple sipper or salad wine. It has gravitas and complexity. — 6 days ago

Dourthe

La Grande Cuvée Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Nothing better than inexpensive white Bordeaux with some age, the youthful acidity just fades away. The Dourthe (Thienot) is one of our perennial favorites.

Nose is heavily on lemon zest, freshly cut grass, cold apricot and steely minerals.
Palate has muted lemon, hint of tangerine, lemon grass and lightly sour green grapes.

Delicious!

SO good. Less citrus (although there was DEFINITELY enough) and a little more peach and kiwi fruit. DUDE.

Blanc Fumé de Pouilly Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Wasn’t planning to open this bottle but we needed something with a clean flinty/mineral finish to go with the Japanese New Years dishes. #happynewyear — 13 days ago

Domaine du Bouchot (Kerbiquet)

Pouilly-Fumé Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Ooooh I want to dance with this wine. It is nimble and graceful and yet structured enough to make you feel like it is a partner that will not drop you which is important if you are either going to a) attempt a lift or b) drink. Full of minerals and stone fruit with a lover’s bite of acid. It keeps you on your toes. — 4 days ago

New Zealand 🇳🇿 is well known for its distinctive Sauvignon Blanc’s with their clean crisp refreshing mouth feel and unique citrus signature. This wine in my opinion is one of the best. Citrus and lemon grass flavor for sure blended with tropical fruits yet not over powering making it the perfect sip on a snowy day by the fireplace. Cheers 🍷 — 12 days ago

Silex Pouilly-Fumé Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Had this in VT with colossal crab legs on the grill (which were amazing!). The Silex was perfect. Decanted for an hour and it really showed up. — 10 days ago

Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2016

A lovely wine, which is stylistically different from the typical Napa SB.
The nose is so exotic and floral. Lots of grapefruit, gooseberry and cut grass. Palate is clean, crisp and precise. Finishes dry, taut, and with salinity. A clone of Didier Dagueneau Pur Sang, which in my mind is a huge compliment. Kudos to
@Maayan Koschitzky and his team.

Day 2 note, this is not a hit-n-run pour. It’s an intellectual quaff. Take your time to enjoy its twists and turns (its story).

@Kim Stanbro I’ve eaten plenty of gooseberries in my childhood, but I’m from Russia and they are pretty common here. Maybe it’s an Old World vs. New World thing?

Thanks for coming to my rescue, @Riddley Walker 🙂 I was fearful that @Kim Stanbro was going to savage me with that rubber glove!!!
Day two and
@Maayan Koschitzky’s SB has made somewhat of a hard turn and picked up more pace. It’s more lifted, while still zippy on the palate. Displays such a pure, racy finish. Taking the numbers up 2 pts - outstanding!

Haha, now I fear my comment was combative! :) one of these days I’ll make it to either the UK or Russia and eat my fill of gooseberries! I’ll also drink wine and toast to you both, @Ron R @Riddley Walker

Vaso

Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2012

12 & 13 Dana Vaso. 12 was the clear winner last night. I’d like to revisit the 13 in 6/12 months.
The color was so light almost transparent. Meyer lemon, green apple, white peach & grapefruit/ tangerine skin. The palate is vibrant with a zesty energy that is perfectly balanced with the softness & subtle notes of white flowers. Have it on it’s own or with food.
WHY spend $175 on the Dana SB when you can get this at a fraction of the price. BUY!!
@Mike R You & Rhonda ... As always 5 star hospitality at your house. The kids are looking forward to coming back to your CC this summer.
