LEVEL (2) WHITE WINE

2019 RAOUL GAUTHERIN CHABLIS VIEILLES VIGNES

logo, company name
“Hints of bee pollen and crushed minerals mingle with flavors of baked apple and poached pear in this spicy, smoky white. Matured twelve months in barrel, it’s a full-bodied sip speckled with nutmeg and smoked almonds. Welcoming young, the wine should gain honeyed complexity through 2026 and hold a bit further. “

90 Points

2021 SANNA NAPA VALLEY SAUVIGNON BLANC

“The Sanna 2021 Sauvignon Blanc opens with fresh aromas of elderflower, pink grapefruit, lime zest, fresh-cut grass, and passion fruit. On the palate, the wine’s lively acidity perfectly complements the bright fruit flavors like honeydew melon and lychee. This wine is an excellent pairing for warm summer days but still has the sophistication to accompany a fine dining experience.”

NV GOLDENEYE NORTH COAST BRUT ROSÉ

“The Goldeneye North Coast Brut Rosé Sparkling Wine opens with aromas of orange blossom, strawberry cream cheese, sour cherry, apricot, and brioche. On the palate, the wine has a creamy, supple mousse and flavors of strawberry, grapefruit, and toasted pastry dough. The depth of flavors is impressive and contributes to a long, delightful finish.”

2018 SCHOOL HOUSE SPRING MOUNTAIN DISTRICT CHARDONNAY

This Chardonnay is an excellent example of our wine— elegant, clean, and distinct from most California Chardonnays. The wine was fermented in seasoned French oak barrels, and aged “sur lie” for 10 months and stirred weekly. It was then racked and returned to barrel for an additional 8 months. This wine is crisp, clean, and assertive with exceptional minerality and ripe pear flavors.”

2020 DOMAINE LA CROIX SAINT-LAURENT CAILLOTTES SANCERRE

The Domaine La Croix Saint-Laurent 2020 Caillottes Sancerre is wonderfully bright and begins with notes of fresh green grass, pink grapefruit, lemon zest, mandarin orange, verbena, and flint. On the palate, the wine has a brilliant acidity backed by intense flavors of lemon meringue, peach, and passionfruit and a mouthwatering finish. This vintage emphasizes fresh fruit aromatics and has a clean, crisp finish.”

2020 MAISON JESSIAUME RULLY WHITE BURGUNDY

“White flowers and salinity on the nose. Gorgeous entry, rich, smooth, supple, and fresh, with great weight, energy, and texture. Flavors of peach, pear, orange-tinged acidity leading to a long, vibrant finish. Aged on the lees for 12 months in oak barrels (15% new) and then 4 months in steel tanks.”
