Palacio de Bornos Sauvignon Blanc 2015 Product #30939 (In Stock)
Palacio de Bornos Sauvignon Blanc 2015 Palacio de Bornos Sauvignon Blanc 2015

We've loved Palacio de Bornos Verdejo for years, but just wait until you try their zesty Sauvignon Blanc!  Like the Verdejo, this is from the hot, arid, vineyards of Spain's Rueda where plenty of sunshine gives great ripeness and cool, crisp, nights (and very careful winemaking) translate into...well, a cool, crisp, white!  This juicy value pumps out loads of citrus and green grape fruit with an enlivening dash of herbal Meyer lemon.  Delicious and fun to drink.

"Dried lemon, pear skin, melon and quinine on the mineral-accented nose and in the mouth. Dry, nervy and sharply focused, picking up an exotic pineapple nuance as the wine opens up. Finishes taut and spicy, showing good energy and a touch of succulent herbs."  Vinous (Raynolds) 89 points

Lora Verdejo Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Product #32016 (In Stock)
Lora Verdejo Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Lora Verdejo Sauvignon Blanc 2016

What makes a perfect Spring/Summer party/back deck/casual entertaining white wine?  It seems to us that it should be fresh, crisp and refreshing – if you’re getting hot, it should cool you off.  It should have good body and weight so it can be enjoyed with treats like fresh seafood, grilled chicken or even hot dogs.  But, it should also have the zestiness and herbal complexity to be a perfect companion to fresh green salads.  And, in a perfect world, it should be at least a little distinctive so it stands out from the ocean of grocery store Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio out there – but without standing out too far on price.

This is that wine!  It’s made from certified organic fruit grown by young Rioja winemaker Miguel Merino Navajas in vineyards located in the far East of La Mancha – where the hills begin to rise to mountains and cool air pours down nightly to preserve freshness.  Spain’s Verdejo grape gives this a nice dose of tangerine juice, orange zest, and good body.  Sauvignon Blanc provides a burst of refreshing white grapefruit, a touch of lime, and just a refreshing dusting of fresh grass.   As the winemaker says, “Perfect to drink with Tapas, salads and vegetable dishes, all kinds of pasta, mild cheeses and exotic cuisine. It also goes great with fish, seafood, grilled meats or just a glass on its own.”

Ch La Roche St. Jean Blanc 2016 Product #32200 (In Stock)

A staff and customer favorite! This white Bordeaux starts with aromas of just-squeezed lemon and fresh cut grass. On the palate, there’s a nice, juicy hit of riper Meyer lemon that comes in, and the whole thing finishes mouthwateringly clean. While many white Bordeaux are blended with Semillon and Muscadelle to add waxy weight or fruitiness, Ch La Roche St Jean is 100% Sauvignon Blanc. There’s no oak to hide all that tangy fruit, and it’s a very reasonable 13.0% alcohol. If you’ve shied away from New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc because of its over-the-top grapefruitiness or overwhelming, pungent passionfruit flavors, this is the perfect SB for you.

A bit of barrel fermented wine gives this extra richness of texture to go with the classic, fresh, SB fruit.

A touch of French elegance to this Kiwi Sauvvy made by a Sancerre house.

"The 2015 Petit Clos Sauvignon Blanc has a provocative nose of peaches and passionfruit with hints of struck match, jasmine and sauteed herbs. Light to medium-bodied, the palate reveals wonderful intensity, with layers of citrus, tropical fruit and mineral flavors supported by a crisp backbone and finishing with satisfying length."Wine Advocate 90 points

Wither Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Product #32192 (In Stock)

A gloriously grapefruity Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc here that steers a perfect line between sweetness of fruit and a bracing, crisp, finish.  Loaded with perfectly ripe white grapefruit - at once sweet and tart - with accents of green melon, guava, and freshly grated grapefruit zest.  Lip-smacking on the finish, this a great warm weather cooler and will be great with salads, mussels, and prosciutto and melon.

Jolivet Attitude Sauvignon Blanc 2015 Jolivet Attitude Sauvignon Blanc 2015

As Wine Spectator says, this is "a terrific value" Sauvignon from just outside of Sancerre.  Melon, stone fruit, and white grapefruit citrus flavors shine in nicely round, almost creamy, wine that finishes crisp and dry.

"Fresh, with a light, zippy mix of peach, lemon and verbena notes. Showing textbook typicity, this is a terrific value."Wine Spectator 88 points

Dom Pierre Prieur & Fils Sancerre 2016 Product #31899 (In Stock)

A great wine is even better in the zesty 2016 Loire Valley harvest. Classic Sancerre Sauvignon, with generous aromas and flavors of white peach, white grapefruit, passion fruit, flint, and a touch of herb.  Supple and very pure on the palate, it finishes with refreshing cut and minerality and lovely purity to go with the rich texture.  A great food Sancerre that's polished enough to just sip, too.

One of New Zealand's best Sauvignon Blanc houses turns out another fine, ripe, Sauvvy in 2016.  Lots of tangy, refreshing, fruit here with just a touch of grassy complexity.  A fine sipper and better match for seafood, salads and cheese.

Dog Point Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Dog Point Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Another great vintage for this benchmark New Zealand winery founded by Cloudy Bay alums. Not yet reviewed, but sure to join the 91-93 point hit parade of vintages 2010-2015!  As always, there's a lot of stone fruit and spice flavor here with more body than the typical New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Coats your palate with lush fruit and an almost salty freshness with notes of citrus, peach, ginger and herb weaving in and out and lingering on the long finish.

Jean Marc Brocard Saint Bris Sauvignon 2015 Product #31779 (In Stock)

St Bris's vineyards lie just outside of Chablis on white chalk Kimmeridgian soils and are the only part of Burgundy where Sauvignon Blanc, rather than Chardonnay, rules.  Classic SB aromas and flavors of white grapefruit, lemon pulp, and stone fruit with savory accents of crushed herb and slate get an extra boost of density and richness from the warm 2015 vintage and 60 year-old vines.  Think a richer, rounder, Sancerre and you'll have the right idea.

Sidebar Sauvignon Blanc Lake County 2015 Product #32138 (In Stock)

Sidebar is a side project of David Ramey, and this delightful Sauvignon Blanc shows just why "second label" wines like this can be such a great value. Refreshing, but still full of ripe melon and juicy orange flavor before the crisp, dry finish.

"Focused and precise, with detailed lemon meringue, orange blossom and lime zest flavors that are intense, fragrant and harmonious on the long, crisp finish. Drink now. 2,198 cases made."Wine Spectator 91 points

Fleuriet Renaissance Sancerre La Magie Des Caillottes 2015 Fleuriet Renaissance Sancerre La Magie Des Caillottes 2015

From vines up to 40 years-old growing on Sancerre’s famous Kimmeridgian soils, the chalky marls responsible for the best wines of Chablis and Champagne, too.  Fermented and aged 50% in tank and 50% in brand new French oak barrels, allowing the oak to round off Sauvignon’s sometimes harsh edges and time on the fine lees to add body and creamy richness.  The oak shows in the wine’s texture – round, smooth, voluptuous – but not so much in the aromas and flavors.  It’s bold and rich with very ripe peach, white citrus, and an exotic touch of tangerine.  There’s plenty of body in this warm vintage, but also a sizzlingly sharp finish where lemon citrus and mineral notes make your mouth water and keep the flavors fresh and long.  A fine wine to just drink for refreshment on a warm day and even better with cilantro-laced Vietnamese fish dishes.

Greywacke Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2016 Product #32112 (In Stock)
Greywacke Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2016 Greywacke Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2016

The newest release of one of New Zealands most decorated Sauvignon Blancs delivers again with this rich, ripe, 2016.  Big aromas of ripe apple, pear and peach with a touch of pink grapefruit lead to a crisp, dry, palate loaded with citrus and orchard fruits.  Silky-textured and mouthfilling, it's a Marlborough Sauvignon for sipping and a wide range of foods. Kevin Judd's years of running Cloudy Bay shine through here!

"The 2016 Sauvignon Blanc has a fresh grass, bay leaves, green beans and wild thyme-led nose with hints of lime leaves and lemongrass. Medium-bodied and with a lovely creaminess to the texture, it offers great intensity and a long green-veggie finish."Wine Advocate 90 points

"Veteran Kevin Judd has turned out another fine effort. Passion fruit and pea tendril aromas impart a welcome green edge that's never overwhelming, picking up layers of white grapefruit on the plump, medium-bodied palate. The finish is intense, long and citrusy."Wine Enthusiast 91 points

"Opens with a fragrant floral note, offering high tones of honeysuckle. The lemon meringue pie and dried mango flavors are intense and vivid, showing terrific intensity on the finish. Drink now."Wine Spectator 91 points

Dom Pelle Menetou-Salon Morogues 2014 Dom Pelle Menetou-Salon Morogues 2014

Located just southwest of Sancerre, Menetou-Salon has become a fine source of Sauvignon Blanc that marries Sancerre's flinty minerality to just a touch more lightness and freshness.  This blends fruit from 7 relatively high-altitude vineyards to give a pretty wine with light white citrus and stone fruit aromas and flavors with accents of fresh grass and wet stones.  Mouthwatering and generous on the palate with a long, lightly fruity finish.  Delicious!

Henri Bourgeois Sancerre La Chapelle des Augustins 2014 Henri Bourgeois Sancerre La Chapelle des Augustins 2014

Ripe, tart, lightly herbal, and pulsing with gunflint minerality, this stunner from old vines drinks well now and will be better from 2018.

"The combination of chalk and flint soils has produced a wine that is young and all about minerality at this stage. It has considerable potential with its hints of ripe fruits. For now, with texture dominant, it is still fresh, tangy and developing."Wine Enthusiast 92 points

"This ripples with gooseberry, thyme and chive notes, thanks to mouthwatering acidity that pulls everything through the finish with tightly coiled focus. Show subtle depth, echoing with a hint of bitter citrus."Wine Spectator 91 points

Gerard Boulay Sancerre a Chavignol 2016 Product #32229 (In Stock)
Gerard Boulay Sancerre a Chavignol 2016 Gerard Boulay Sancerre a Chavignol 2016

The Boulay family have held vines in Sancerre since 1380 and Gerard Boulay has grown and made wine here for almost all of his 60 years.  He holds about 22 acres of vineyard on the steeply sloped hill of Chavignol, the heart of Sancerre.  His 35-70 year-old vines dig into Chavignol’s famous white “terre blanche” chalk and limestone soils also important in Champagne and Chablis.  The farming is all organic, the vineyards worked and harvested by hand, and the winemaking as simple as can be with native yeasts, no new oak, and minimal use of sulfur.

Vintage 2016 is a great one here, every bit the peer (or better) than 2014.  I think Wine Advocate’s 92 point review of the 2014 sums up what you’ll find in your glass from this bottling well:  “Wild and intense on the nose, pretty aromatic and upfront in its classic orange and citrus flavors that come along very pure and mineral, though really intense and with no compromises. Full-bodied, full-flavored, pure and mineral on the palate, this is a characterful and well structured Sancerre with great expression, salinity and grip. A real character, as always.”
