Wow - this is something special. Preserved Meyer lemons, sea salt, whipped cream. Texture and depth that is enveloping, acidity and savory quality that excites the palate. Enjoyed with gazpacho. The story behind this bottle is interesting and inspiring.

Smells like lemons drizzled with olive oil & salt, tastes like a box of lemonheads that washed up in the sea foam at your feet.

Feels like papaya nectar. A lil effervescence, I mean no so2, so duh. This is def a tropical sauv but has that natty Loire essence. 🙏. Also there isn’t a vintage on the bottle, but I don’t think it’s NV, wutttttt. So I put 2015 bc probs.

Complex wine with lemon and mellon with dried pear and stones. Fully bodied and not too zippy. Excellent wine from one of the most famous sav blanc properties in France (Clos de Roche).
