  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    ($36) Pale color. Subdued aromas of soft citrus fruits, lemon drop, minerals and spearmint, plus a whiff of goat cheese. Softer, lusher and fruitier than the Tradition but with firm acids framing the flavors of jasmine, honeysuckle, tarragon and licorice. This is even more Loire-like than the Tradition, but deeper and more pliant.

    Impressive for its smooth elegance and clarity, with fragrant apple blossom, passion fruit, Meyer lemon and green apple flavors. Manages to balance crisp acidity with refinement.

    The 2009 Sauvignon Blanc Les Pionniers exhibits more minerality with notes of wet stones, honeyed citrus, melons and figs. This medium-bodied white cuts a slightly deeper, more exuberant swath across the palate and possesses a surprisingly long finish.

    amazing. Apricot, peach , pear and orange blossum on the finish. a brace of minerality, and a long smooth finish. Still as fresh and vital as a sunny day.
