This wine is a White blend inspired by the cellar masters of Bordeaux and their dedication to Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Classically Bordeaux to its core, the 2021 Shared Notes Les Leçons des Maîtres harmonizes the finest aspects of both the Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon varietals.
Bibiana/Jeff Notes: “Possessing a striking and radiant light green hue, the 2021 Les leçons des maîtres harkens back to the legendary cuvées of these famed varietals born from the rocky soils of Bordeaux. Beautifully pure notes of lemon oil, lime zest, and Ruby grapefruit set the pace, as heady aromas of white peach and crushed rock bring up the rear. This classic blend of 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Semillon creates a wine of two distinct parts, yet harmonizes into one seamless experience. Bracing acidity cuts a razor-sharp edge through a supple, textured roundness brought on by the addition of Semillon and 100% new French oak aging. This simply stunning blend will continue to age gracefully for as long as the temptation of removing the cork can be resisted. Only 168 cases were produced.”
Tasting Notes: Crushed white peach, Bosc pear, and honeysuckle fill the glass as this youthful, shimmering light green wine starts to breathe with each swirl. Flavors of stone fruits, ripe melon, and lemon zest combine with mineral-driven notes of crushed rock and sea air to form a precise, yet complex profile. Vibrant, mouthwatering acidity dances on the palate, while generous volume and texture from aging peacefully on its lees provides an unmistakable richness.
