A Sauvignon Blanc inspired by the pure and focused wines of the Loire Valley, where the rocks “decide” the style.
Jeff/Bibiana Notes: “Shimmering in the glass with hues of pale straw and the slightest tinge of youthful green, the 2021 Shared Notes Les Pierres Qui Décident is unmistakable as its explosive personality, quite literally, fills the air. True to its name, where the rocks “decide” the style, this wine opens with subtle notes of chalky stone and sea air that give way to a dazzling display of crisp and remarkably pure notes of crisp pear, Granny Smith apple, lemon peel, and peach blossom. Flavors of lemon tart, nectarine, and freshly cut herbs surge across the palate, then give way to vibrant, mouthwatering acidity. Aging exclusively in 100% new French oak 132-gallon puncheons, this Sauvignon Blanc delivers great texture with hints of spice and toasted vanilla. Flashy and effusive in its youth, this beautiful varietal expression will continue to evolve and gain substantial complexity as it ages in the bottle. Sadly only 107 cases were produced.”
Tasting Notes: “Nicely sculpted wine. Bright and fruit, yet still steely and racy which is the hallmark style of this wine
A great body that is finely sculpted. On the nose, you are greeted by green apple and pear notes with hints of white flowers. The palate is full and loaded with granny smith, crushed rocks, nectarine and sappy green herbs that offer a lush and layered texture. The wine has bright acidity and a great finish.
