Clos Henri Sauvignon Blanc 2019


In Stock

“A supple, full-bodied Sauvignon Blanc that fills the mouth with its floral scent. Sauvignon’s angular frame is softened by an additional layer of savory complexity due to partial maturation in French oak barrels and aging on fine lees. The finish is a little tough, however; firm acidity combined with what seems to be a phenolic edge somewhat detracts from an otherwise gorgeous wine. Drinking window: 2020-2024. 89 points

The Kiwi venture from Sancerre’s Bourgeois family brings a French flavor to vineyard maintenance with European-esque plant densities and dry farming as well as organic viticulture. Their flagship cuvées focus on restraint and texture rather than aromatic flamboyance.”
