Another stunning Saurint Sauvignon. This is up there with the likes of Dagueneau and Vatan, phenomenally crafted, concentrated and weightless, with some extra tropical minerality

Superlative concentration, less grassy, more complexly herbal, sweet tea, juicy but round.

Majestic stuff. A bunch load of freshly cut herbs, defined citrus fruits, peach and Golden Delicious apples. Perfectly integrated oak treatment adds depth and complexity. Great already but this has enough structure for cellar development too.

A special bottle given to Elsa Vare by Enzo pontoni (Miani vigneron), we visited the vineyard whose name is written in the label--one of the magic wine moments. Pure salinity.

2010 Miani Saurint Sauvignon. The only guy in the same league as Dageneau.

Intense and wildly complex, this youngster offers depth beyond belief, and thanks to Enzo's new winemaking ideas more purity of fruit than ever before. The '15 vintage was warmer than average, so no lack of shyness here. Needs another few years to fully come together, but hard to resist even at this early stage. Well done!

Easy 96+ points. There's no doubt in hell, that this belongs to the Sauvignon elite. The new vintage is stylistically different, as winemaking has changed, but it you don't hunt this down, you're an idiot.

Open knit aromas flows into a sleek profile Chardonnay which, considering the vintage (2014) is astonishingly rich and pure. Yes, it does miss the elite precision of the 2013 counterpart but is damn tasty.
