Grapes: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
This wine is 100% estate grown and bottled from fruit sourced exclusively from Michel Redde’s La Moynerie vineyard. The vines are between 20 and 25 years old and grow in diverse subsoils of limestone, kimmeridgian marl, and clay with flint—a diversity that allows superb blends in every vintage. The winemaker uses temperature-controlled fermentation and ages the wine on the lees until bottling.
Wine Enthusiast2017 vintage
Wine Spectator2017 vintage
2017 was a difficult but successful vintage. April frosts reduced the total 2017 production by 60%. This was followed by a very hot and dry summer that stressed the vines but led to great concentration of flavors and sugars in the grapes. Harvest began on September 11.
This classic Sauvignon Blanc expresses the aromatic mineral purity of its diverse soils. Crisp and fresh on the palate, the wine features notes of smoke and gunflint with intense grassy aromas on the nose.
Pair with grilled fish or white meat.

about the grape +
Sauvignon Blanc has vivid, assertive aromas and flavors of gooseberries, citrus, herbs framed by tangy acidity. Oak contact adds tropical fruit, vanilla, lanolin and toast notes.
