The trademark reductive complexity will surprise the regular sauvignon-blanc drinker and delight those who delve into great white Burgundy. Flinty lemon and grapefruit pith and really fresh, river-stone minerals, the palate has a gently creamy array of lime and green-mango flavors. Super wine. Drink now. Screw cap.
Block 94 the 1990s single-vineyard section is as a reminder, “a particularly good Sauvignon Blanc block,” noted by James Healy. Character is very much lees driven and reduction is at the top of the freshness, or fresh making game. It’s a delicious and frantic one.
