Translation – Les pierres qui décident = The rocks that decide
Bursting with an aromatic intensity rarely seen in Sauvignon Blanc, the 2019 Shared Notes Les pierres qui décident is a stunning display; where concentration meets delicacy. Incredibly bright notes of fresh lime, citrus blossom, and lemon peel are backed by a distinct salinity formed from the coastal influences of this Russian River Valley site. Brief skin contact prior to pressing gives added texture to the palate, while aging on the lees in 132 gallon French oak puncheons maintains purity of the vibrant, crisp flavors in this refreshingly dry wine. Bracing acidity on the finish provides the pillar that will allow this wine to continue aging for many years to come.
