95 points Bob Campbell: "A blend of wines from the Upper Awatere Valley and the TWR home block in the Wairau Valley. Quite a tight, yet textural, sauvignon blanc with gooseberry, lime zest, lemongrass and a seasoning of tropical fruit and passionfruit character. An appealing wine." (01/2019) 94 points Sam Kim: "This is a gorgeous rendition of the variety; offering vibrancy as well as complexity within a delightful textural mouthfeel. Fragrant aromas of Gala apple, feijoa, nectarine and lemon peel with a hint of oatmeal on the nose. The palate is concen...

95 points Bob Campbell: "Bright, fresh and concentrated sauvignon blanc with punchy regional and varietal flavours including capsicum, nettle, gooseberry, melon and subtle passionfruit. A deliciously accessible wine that delivers everything I expect from Marlborough Sauvignon … and more." (05/2018) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Vibrant and powerful lemon, freshly grated ginger and Key lime notes are succulent and juicy on a smooth frame. Fresh acidity turns up the volume on the pure fruit flavors. (MW)" (09/2019) Wine Enthusiast: "This wine is heady in ...

94 points Vinous: "Bright, light yellow-gold. Multidimensional nose melds aromas of stone fruits, pineapple and pear with notes of savory spices, honey and lemon grass and a Riesling-like piney quality. Compellingly fine-grained, concentrated and harmonious from the start, with a suggestion of figgy sweetness (the wine is technically bone-dry) perfectly countered by strong acidity. Finishes tactile and very long, with a suggestion of eucalyptus. Most recent vintages of this consistently superb wine have been considerably tighter early on, but this is a k...

2017 Aurore Dezat "Les Chasseignes" Sancerre
Top Pick!
91 points Wine Enthusiast: "With a third of the wine aged in barrel, this is a broad, spicy Sauvignon Blanc. The acidity has been muted by the wine's extra richness. Melon and creamed-apple flavors balance the spiciness and final structure. (RV)" (10/2019) K&L Notes: A family domaine that has been run by third-generation winemaker Aurore Dezat since 2011. Dezat farms nine hectares of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir in the commune of Sury-en-Vaux on limestone, pebble and flint soils.

93 points Sam Kim: "Fresh and intensely aromatic, the bouquet shows green rockmelon, passionfruit, kiwifruit and lime peel aromas, leading to a juicy palate that is punchy and very tasty. The wine offers terrific fruit purity and vibrancy, finishing long and delicious. At its best: now to 2021." (07/2019) 90 points James Suckling: "A very fresh and zesty Sauvignon, offering flinty and fresh passion fruit and limes and flowing to a smoothly fleshy, mango and peach palate." (08/2019)

92 points Bob Campbell: "Quite a serious sauvignon with good weight and a pleasingly rich texture. A hint of tropical fruit with melon, nectarine and nutty yeast lees flavours. Dry but not austere. A good food wine. 11/5/2019" (05/2019) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Offers an appealing core of intense, lush flavors of ripe melon and peach, with details of white pepper, honeysuckle and ruby grapefruit lingering on the finish. Impressive for the intensity and focus. Drink now. - MW" (09/2019) K&L Notes: #60 on Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2019 Found...

90 points James Suckling: "Super bright and vibrant with a fresh array of tangy lemons and limes. Has some tangy, crunchy resolve. Drink now. Screw cap." (10/2019) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A notable value, the 2018 Sauvignon Blanc features perfumed leafiness on the nose but plenty of ripe nectarine fruit on the palate. It's light to medium-bodied, plump and easy to drink, with a barely perceptible four grams per liter of sugar. (JC)" (03/2019) Wine Enthusiast: "This vintage of Giesen's Sauvignon is a traditional balanced expression, but it doe...

93 points Bob Campbell: "Moderately concentrated, tangy and quite herbaceous sauvignon blanc with capsicum, lemongrass and gooseberry flavours with a restrained tropical fruit influence. Nice purity, texture and length" (05/2019) 92 points James Suckling: "This youthful sauvignon has attractive lime-leaf and fresh-herb aromas with passion fruit and a succulent, fine and fresh lime finish. Immediate enjoyment here. " (08/2018) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This vintage delivers appealing aromas of stone fruit, honeysuckle and wet stone, with only the sl...

95 points Wine & Spirits: "If you've never been blown away by a California sauvignon blanc, you owe it to yourself to taste this wine. Over half of the fruit comes from an old vineyard that Joe Rochioli, Jr., planted in 1959; it's now farmed by his son Tom. Old vines, as well as the sunny, temperate climate and stony soil along the banks of the Russian River, drew the fruit to a precise, focused intensity in 2016. You'll find ripe, luscious flavors of papaya and peach -even redder tones of wild strawberry- tied to a profound sense of mineral depth. For a...

94 points Decanter: "This outstanding white comes from vines on a plateau of limestone and red clay soils. The pure and complex nose combines pear fruit with white flowers. The dense, fleshy yet lively palate has mineral-like characteristics with a long, minty-fresh, airy-textured finished. (YC)" (02/2019) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This beautifully rich wine offers both elegance and ripeness. A sense of maturity comes from the balance between biodynamically grown fruit and the green-fruit and herbal backdrop. The wine is ready to drink although it wi...

91 points James Suckling: "This shows lots of fresh pears and green apples, as well as hints of lemons and a sherbet undertone. Shimmer of flavors with a medium body and a creamy texture. Fruity and delicious. Drink now." (05/2019) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This comes from vineyards in St. Helena, Rutherford, Yountville, Oak Knoll and Gordon Valley. It fermented in stainless steel and 5% new/used barrels without malolactic and aged eight months sur lie. The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc contains a splash of Sémillon and 20% Musqué clone. It jumps up and b...

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "No tasting note given. " (04/2010) Jancis Robinson: "Grass and cream, lovely textural quality - just a little grainy (20% Sémillon responsible perhaps). Smoky and flinty on the finish - excellent stuff. (RH) 17.5/20 points" (11/2013) K&L Notes: 93 points, Neal Martin's Wine Journal: "Tasted at the property. Now this is an excellent white Graves. Tiptoeing into its secondary phase there are hints of beeswax and wild honey beginning to emerge, along with superb delineation. The palate has good weight, a little ...

99 points James Suckling: "The aromas to this great white show wonderful sherbet, limes, green melon, salt and honey blossom. Full to medium body, with a vertical, compact fruit presence, firmness and great length. Such energy and intensity with focus and elegance. Best white of Napa at the moment? Drink or hold." (05/2018) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Bottled in late July, the 2017 Sauvignon Blanc is a real step up from previous vintages, springing from the glass with vibrant lime cordial, orange blossom and grapefruit notes with touches ...

97 points Decanter: "Our sole Sauvignon Blanc representative in the Best In Show class this year comes from Marlborough rather than any of the key Northern Hemisphere sites, but our judges loved the way in which this was not necessarily obvious from its profile. With its fresh, sappy, crushed-spring-leaf aromas and limpid, long, vinous yet tender profile in the mouth, this is simply great Sauvignon from an outstanding site rather than one of the overt or flamboyant Marlborough Sauvignons drinkers have become used to (and sometimes bored by). There's no s...

92 points James Suckling: "A very fresh, lithe and juicy feel to this sauvignon with bright, juicy green passion fruit and green mangoes taking center stage, amid fresh, stony resolve. Drink now. " (08/2019) K&L Notes: From the winery: "The Te Muna Road Vineyard is located some seven kilometres outside of the Martinborough township. The vineyard consists of two distinct terraces; the higher comprising very old, stony clay-infused soils perfect for Pinot Noir. The lower terrace of younger stony soils interwoven with limestone provides an excellent env...

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine's green pear scent has an earthy tang. The palate has gentle grass- and lemon-scented freshness. It's light in body and unobtrusive, with a dry, subtly aromatic finish. (AK)" (09/2018) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From 15- to 40-year-old vines from the Kranachberg, Sernauberg and Pfarrweingarten vineyards, the 2017 Gamlitz Sauvignon Blanc is pure, clear, bright and fresh on the nose where white nectarine aromas are displayed. On the palate, this is a piquant, fresh and juicy Sauvignon with good grip, intensity a...

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc La Luce is a little closed and reduced to begin, opening out to notions of yellow apples, fresh pears and white peaches with hints of flint and dried herbs. The palate has electric intensity with zingy apple and pear flavors lifted with a wicked backbone of freshness, finishing long and mineral laced. (LPB) 91+" (11/2019) K&L Notes: From the producer: "2018 La Luce Sauvignon Blanc Sauvignon Blanc is one of our favorite refreshments -- crisp, fresh and lively. We have subscribed to this ...

97 points James Suckling: "The refined, yellow grapefruit nose and the elegant first impression on the palate hardly prepare you for the tidal wave of flavor and freshness that then hits you. Yet, the wine remains so light-footed and delicate. Then you glide into the distance through the very long, silky finish. Drink or hold." (02/2019) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pow! The 100% Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Le Petit Cheval Blanc explodes from the glass, delivering a tantalizing perfume of ripe peaches, mango and fresh pineapple with hints of lime...

96 points James Suckling: "Attractive, fresh-lemon and grassy nuances with wild herbs and slightly flinty elements, too. The palate has such intense and fresh acidity. Fine lemons and limes and a thrillingly dry, long finish. " (01/2020) 92-94 points Vinous: "The 2017 Malartic-Lagravière Blanc has a clean, precise and mineral-driven bouquet with touches of smoke and flint hovering like errant school-kids in the background. The palate is very well balanced and full of energy. The acidity neatly counterbalances with saline apply fruit with great persiste...

93 points Wine Spectator: "**#31 in Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines of 2019** A complex note of dried honeysuckle and a whiff of smoke add intrigue and depth to the succulent peach, melon, and mango flavors." 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Sauvignon Blanc Alder Grove is scented of gooseberry, kiwi, cut grass and yellow peach with touches of slate and white flowers. Light to medium-bodied, it has a nicely rounded texture with zesty acidity and a long, flavorful finish. (EB)" (12/2019) K&L Notes: **#31 in Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines of...

90 points Wine Spectator: "Impressively focused and intense, this white opens with a mouthwatering core of pure lemon juice, set on a light and crunchy texture. Details of white pepper and hops linger in the background. Drink now. (MW)" (06/2019)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Bevan fashions three Sauvignon Blancs, one of which rivals the finest Sauvignon Blancs made in California. The 2013 Sauvignon Blanc Dry Stack Vineyard was aged in stainless steel (75%) and in new François Frères barrels (25%). Its clonal material is unknown, but it is a special site, and just over 1,000 cases were produced. One of the most prodigious Sauvignon Blancs I have tasted from anywhere, it offers up notes of beeswax, honeysuckle, caramelized grapefruit and hints of pineapple as well as spice. With fabulo...

2009 Pape Clément Blanc, Pessac-Léognan
Top Pick!
100 points James Suckling: "This really is phenomenal. It shows subtle complexity with dried lemons, papaya, and hints of vanilla. What blows you away is the palate. It is so dense yet agile with amazing tension and a bright finish. It builds and builds in the finish. Superb. Speechless." (07/2012) 100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Pape Clement Blanc is an absolutely remarkable wine, which is not a surprise given what this historic estate has done in both white and red over the last 20 years. Their white wine, an intriguing blend of 4...

91 points Connoisseurs Guide: "A perennial favorite here at CGCW, the Lail Blueprint Sauvignon Blanc wins enthusiastic endorsement yet again. Introduced by deep, discreetly oaked, very nicely composed aromas of white melons, limes, fresh grass and flowers and following suit with lovely, layered flavors of the same, it is a wine that impresses right now for its polish, precision and fruity vibrancy, but it is also one that is impeccably balanced and will age famously for a good half-dozen years providing that one can resist its already considerable appeal...

95 points Bob Campbell: "Intense, ripe Sauvignon Blanc with tree fruit, nectarine, red capsicum and guava flavours. A rich, gently tangy and deliciously accessible wine that stood out from the crowd in a tasting of 2018 wines. " (05/2018) 92 points James Suckling: "This offers a complex take on fruit-driven Sauvignon style with fresh limes and lemons, as well as peaches on offer and there’s a succulent wrap of smooth-textured fruit to close." (08/2019) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc is on the tropical end of the sp...

92 points Wine Spectator: "Complex, offering a mix of beeswax, honeysuckle and dried mango flavors up front, which give way to poached pear and apricot notes at the core, with spice, toast and almond butter edges mingling. Wonderful succulent acidity makes the finish just as powerful as the first aromatic sniff. (MW)" (02/2019) 91 points James Suckling: "This shows lots of clean fruit character with white peach and light grapefruit. Some yogurt. Medium body, bright acidity and a fresh and clean finish. Delicious white." (11/2017) 91 points Wine Enthu...

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is outstanding white wine, entirely varietal and estate, aged in both new and old puncheons. Matchstick, flint and rounded acidity boost a midpalate of structure and complexity highlighted in white flower, lemon zest and Asian pear. Editors’ Choice. (VB)" (10/2019) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Succulent, with ripe peach and apricot flavors and details of marmalade, set on a smooth, lush frame. Spice and floral details, as well as a whiff of honeysuckle and nutmeg, glide along on the long, expressive and freshly juicy fini...

95 points Sam Kim: "A splendid rendition of the variety; the intensely aromatic bouquet shows kaffir lime, feijoa, sweet basil and dried herb characters with a touch of almond note. The palate is powerful and dynamic, displaying wonderful mid palate weight and vibrancy, leading to a persistent refined finish. It is pristine yet complex with layers of fine texture and mouth-watering flavours. At its best: now to 2028. " (02/2019) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Cape Crest Sauvignon Blanc is 90% Sauvignon Blanc, 6% Sémillon and 4% Sauv...

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This delicious take on the grape is ripe yet bright. Exotic flavors of peach, pineapple and lemon zest lead to a creamy midpalate, with just a hint of oak shining through. (VB)" (11/2019) Connoisseurs Guide: "A bit riper and more substantial than the winery’s Fumé Blanc bottling and another that stands out for fine value, this juicy, fruit-filled Sauvignon Blanc combines elements of gooseberries and figs with a touch of sweet citrus and a keenly varietal streak of fresh grass. It is medium-bodied and light on its feet with a...

92 points Decanter: "Sourced from a 1ha plot on a south-facing slope, on which the roots are in direct contact with the bedrock. There are smoky, flinty notes to the juicy white fruit, showing good concentration on the balanced palate. Should age well. (YC)" (02/2019) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This single-vineyard wine is packed with fruit along with an herbal, green asparagus flavor and strongly mineral character. Acidity lifts the fruit to another level of intensity, underlining a promising future. Drink from 2020. (RV)" (01/2020)

91 points Wine Spectator: "Succulent peach, melon and citrus flavors reveal pretty details of spice and dried floral notes in this stylish white, with crisp acidity and a drizzle of honey on the finish. (MW, Web-2019)"

92 points Vinous: "The 2014 Petit Cheval is silky and beautifully aromatic. Sweet floral and herbal notes meld into a core of red cherry, tobacco, anise and mint. Medium in body and gracious, the 2014 possesses striking balance, especially for a second wine. This is a great expression of the estate with the midweight structure that gives the wine its near-term appeal. The blend is 55 % Merlot and 45 % Cabernet Franc." (03/2018) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Le Petit Cheval Blanc, the first release to be commercialized, has a crisp ...

91 points Wine & Spirits: "Straight-on Sauvignon, this has an earthiness to counter all the bold and juicy passion-fruit and pomelo flavors. It’s perfumed, fresh and zesty." (08/2019) Wine Enthusiast: "Creamy and lush, this is a rich, satisfying white for fans of a more voluptuous style. Flavors lean on peach cobbler, vanilla and brioche. (VB)" (09/2019) James Suckling: "Freshly squeezed lemons, green apples, parsley and basil make for a faint nose. Spritzy with fresh acidity and a bright, if slightly short finish. Drink now. " (02/2019)

2014 Carbonnieux Blanc, Pessac-Léognan
Top Pick!
92 points James Suckling: "Aromas of cooked apples, lemons and stones. Full body, tangy acidity and a grapefruit aftertaste. Lively and fresh." (02/2017) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Carbonnieux Blanc has a detailed and vivacious bouquet offering attractive blackcurrant leaf and citrus aromas, hints of almond and white chocolate just tucked in nicely below the surface. The palate is well balanced with a slice of bitter lemon on the entry. This is a little more piercing in the mouth compared to its peers, as such, it would shine wh...

91 points Vinous: "The 2017 Sauvignon Blanc is explosive, rich and full of flavor, with all of the energy and layers of nuance that make Sauvignons from Happy Canyon so distinctive. The 2017 was fermented in steel and aged in neutral oak. Vineyard sources are Happy Canyon Vineyard and McGinley. (AG)" (09/2018) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Sauvignon Blanc has a gregarious nose of ripe yellow peach, lemongrass, elderflower, stone and lime peel with herbal notes and a tropical fruit core. It's light to medium-bodied with intense citr...

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Really delicious and intense Carbonnieux already with lemon-rind, green-apple and lime character. Medium body. Energetic finish." (04/2019) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Carbonnieux 2018 Blanc features intense lime juice, yuzu and green mango scents with touches of lemon curd and white pepper. Medium-bodied, very tightly wound and zesty in the mouth, it has a racy backbone and a mineral-laced finish. (LPB)" (04/2019) 91-92 points James Suckling: "The wine already has a delicious side that is both refr...

90 points Wine Spectator: "Rich, honeyed notes of pear and peach are lush and creamy, with plenty of spice. The supple texture comes with a crisp edge of pineapple juice and fresh acidity that reaches a crescendo on the finish. (MW, Web Only-2018)" Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2014 Sauvignon Blanc is solid and offers plenty of white peach, citrus, and hints of lime and mint in a medium-bodied, juicy, refreshing style." (12/2017) K&L Notes: Winery notes: "Our Sauvignon Blanc comes from our 4-acre 18-year-old dry-farmed vineyard which sits at an altitude of 850 fe...

97-98 points James Suckling: "This is very powerful and tangy with driven acidity and freshness. Full-bodied yet layered and bright. Tight center palate. One of my favorite whites of the vintage." (04/2019) 93-95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Cos D'Estournel Blanc includes slightly more Sémillon and is 67% Sauvignon and 33% Sémillon brought up all in barrel, with just 7% being new. Richer notes of crushed citrus, tart peach, white flowers, and salty minerality all emerge from this beauty. It's medium to full-bodied, clean, nicely concentrated, and has ...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc bursts from the glass with notes of lemon tart, key lime pie and orange blossoms with nuances of acacia honey, baking bread, fresh grapefruit and crushed stones. Medium-bodied, the palate has fantastically intense citrus and mineral notes, framed by great freshness and a silken texture, finishing very long and perfumed. (LPB)" (11/2019) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Lemon meringue, spice and grapefruit flavors reveal whiffs of lanolin and spice lingering in the background, as well candied ...

90-92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "From vines just to the west of the estate and mostly Sauvignon Blanc, the 2018 Château Lynch-Bages Blanc is a solid effort, offering classic notes of lemon curd, white flowers, and subtle minerality, medium body, good freshness and purity, and a clean, dry finish." (05/2019) Vinous: "Bottled in May, the 2018 Blanc de Lynch Bages was matured for six months in 50% new oak, the Sauvignon Blanc fermented in tank. This has more vigor and attack on the nose compared to the 2017, delivering citrus fruit, Granny Smith apples and fres...

95 points Bob Campbell: "Delicately aromatic Sauvignon Blanc with gooseberry, oyster shell, mineral, lemongrass and ginger flavours. The wine has an appealing texture and impressive purity, with a lengthy finish. A classy Sauvignon with power and panache." (08/2017) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The barrel-fermented and aged (8 months, in 20% new oak) 2016 Hope Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc features attractive, complex aromas of struck match and pencil shavings layered over white nectarines, melon and fig.

90 points Vinous: "I found the 2016 rendition of this tank-raised bottling (for more on whose sources consult my review of that wine) a bit brusque and crudely Sauvignon in character as well as lacking in refreshment. But what a difference in 2017! Penetratingly high-toned mint and pennyroyal are joined on the nose by an anticipation of the bright lime and juicy honeydew that subsequently dominate the firm palate. The bracing, refreshing, pungently herbal finish is loaded with energy and transparent to chalky underpinnings. Winemaker Stephan Attmann read...

92 points Vinous: "Dragonette's 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Happy Canyon is gorgeous. Bright, floral and energetic, the Sauvignon Blanc Happy Canyon is endowed with striking aromatic intensity and depth, both of which make it incredibly appealing, even in the very early going. This is an especially brisk style for Dragonette, but that is mostly the vintage speaking. Vineyard sites are Grassini and Vogelzang, with some Grimm's Bluff. (AG)" (09/2019) 91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "There are four Sauvignon Blanc releases, three single vineyards and one appellation rele...

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "The first vintage of Sauvignon Blanc from this producer is a complex and lively white wine to balance their rich red portfolio. Aromas of jalapeño, green herbs and wet cement meet with nectarine on the nose, while the zesty palate combines bell pepper, lime peel, peach and tropical fruit. *Editors’ Choice* (MK)" (07/2019)

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Subtle notes of ripe lemon and nettle mingle on the nose. The palate remains resolutely light and is bright with lemon freshness, with a dry finish that closes on a herbal tisane note.

90 points Vinous: "The 2016 Sauvignon Blanc McGinley Vineyard is quite soft in this vintage, with a lovely interplay between varietal fruit character and the soft curves that make the wine such a delight to taste now. Candied lemon, orchard fruit, white flower, chamomile and almond all grace a very pretty and expressive wine that emphasizes fruit over the green/grassy notes that are typical of many Sauvignon Blancs. (AG)" (09/2018)
