Pale yellow. Pungent, sexy aromas of lemon, nectarine, white grapefruit, crushed mint, anise and spring flowers. Supple, juicy and penetrating, with a musky complexity to the citrus zest and ripe grapefruit flavors. Conveys a tactile impression of extract without weight. Vibrant and well-delineated sauvignon with excellent balancing acidity. The brisk, persistent, palate-dusting finish shows a refreshing touch of bitterness. This is excellent.

Intense, vibrant and focused, with a mouthwatering acidity to compliment the Meyer lemon, passion fruit, Asian pear and sweet pea notes. Builds intensity on the long, juicy finish. Drink now.

The 2010 Sauvignon Blanc Les Pionniers is a bit richer, deeper and stonier than the Tradition. It shows quite a bit of depth in its fruit, along with persistent layers of minerality that provide an interesting counterpoint. White peaches, almonds, flowers and mint are woven into the layered, expressive finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012–2014.

Tastes sweeter and fruitier than the 2009, which was dry, so if you like orange marmalade, pineapple tart and vanilla cookie sugariness in your Sauvignon Blancs, it’s for you.
