Partly (10%) barrel-matured, with the rest seeing extended lees contact, don't be alarmed that the 2018 Sauvignon Blanc is the current release from this offshoot of Loire-based Henri Bourgeois. Somehow, it captures some of that asparagus-like character often found in Sancerre and combines it with enough New World citrus fruit to be pretty darn tasty. Medium to full-bodied, it shows more vegetal notes than I generally prefer, yet it balances those with generosity and concentration on the palate, and attractive grapefruit flavors emerge on the lingering finish. Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker Wine Advocate

Unirrigated vines planted in Greywacke river stones. It's 10% barrel-fermented. Quite a rich, textural, and concentrated sauvignon blanc with gooseberry, capsicum, oyster-shell and a suggestion of passionfruit supported by lively acidity. Bob Campbell MW
