This white blend was inspired by the cellar masters of Bordeaux and their dedication to Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Classically Bordeaux to its core, the 2022 Shared Notes Les Leçons des Maîtres harmonizes the finest aspects of both the Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon varietals.
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 provide an unmistakable richness.
Bibiana/Jeff Notes: “At the beginning, a pale straw hue tinged with youthful hints of green shimmers in the glass. The second movement envelops the olfactory, with pure aromas of peach blossom, lime zest, and fresh honeysuckle that are backed by subtle notes of candied ginger and spiced vanilla bean. As wine meets palate, the Sauvignon component is prominent with flavors of crisp green apple, citrus peel, and wet stone, while the Semillon adds a plush, rounded aspect in the form of nectarine, fresh melon, and lemon oil. The final movement is perhaps the most memorable, as these two varietals dance across the palate. The incredible freshness and vibrancy are tempered by the soft, supple texture of the Semillon and all is brought into balance during eight months of peaceful sur lie aging in 100% new French oak barrels. A delight in its youth, this wine will continue to merit a standing ovation for many years to come. ”
