    The Grand Village 2018 Blanc is blended of 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Smillon, with the Sauvignon harvested September 3 and 6 and the Smillon harvested August 31 and September 4. It is a touch reductive to begin, slowly unfurling to reveal intense apricots, ripe pears, pineapple and grapefruit with hints of beeswax, musk perfume and yuzu. Medium-bodied with a satiny texture and wonderful freshness, the palate builds to a zesty crescendo. LP-04/2019

    Creamy, dense and inviting, the 2018 Grand Village Blanc offers a terrific interplay of textural richness and aromatic intensity. The 2018 represents a slight increase in Sauvignon Blanc from Loire clones to about half of the blend. A hint of reduction adds nuance to this super-expressive white. AG-04/2019
