Sauvignon Blanc has been a staple at Cakebread since the early 1970’s long before most folks realized that Napa could produce juicy, beautiful white wines apart from Chardonany. Their foresight and dedication to a robust white wine program in part is what has made this winery so legendary. This one is fresh and zesty with good citrus and tropical aromas, great stone fruit flavors and balanced acidity make this classic Napa SB a perfect fit for a variety of different dishes.
Year in, year out Château Turcaud produces one of the best white wine values in the world. It’s long been found on Michelin-starred wine lists in Paris and we’ve had it at the restaurant since Day 1. If you’ve ever tried this stunning, classic Bordeaux of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Sauvignon Gris and Muscadlle, then you know why. The 2020 vintage has just arrived, and it’s a fantastic vintage in Bordeaux for energetic whites. This is world-class, as always.
This is crafted from old-vines rooted in deep limestone, and dry, limestone-infused clay. The limestone imparts the fine aromatics and crisp tension you find in his wine while the old-vines and clay provide a creaminess in the mid-palate, creating an incredibly balanced summer white. The 2020 Menetou Blanc from Domaine de Loye is loaded with aromas and flavors of white flowers, lime-blossom and citrus fruit. The mid-palate is generous, just great fruit and it finishes long and fine.
A textbook Sancerre Blanc from the village of Bué year in year out, this has become a little bit harder to get ever since it got a huge score in its first year of being reviewed. Now, our little secret isn’t such a little secret anymore. Drawn off the highest in elevation in Sancerre with the most calcareous soil, it is a chiseled, tightly wound and incredibly complex Sauvignon Blanc, which I’d argue is one of the best in the world and certainly from one of the best and most consistent winemakers in the Loire Valley.
Vincent’s wines are now the darlings of I don’t know how many Michelin star wine lists (36 at last count). Perhaps more importantly, his wines are universally beloved by the Nicholas Faithful but perhaps none more so than his tiny “Les Trois Chênes” cuvee. Drawn exclusively from the oldest parcel on the estate planted by his grandfather in 1947, these ancient vines have burrowed deep into the limestone rich soil – providing a freshness and startling minerality typically only found in the top wines of Sancerre.
Vincent Ricard’s newly released old-vine Sauvignon Blanc, Pierre a Feu is one that should be on every Thanksgiving dining tables must-have list. Pierre a Feu comes from a parcel of Sauvignon Blanc planted in 1950 on a south-facing slope of sheer flint. The wine is super fine, with lifted aromatics of lemon zest and mineral-flecked peach. It’s an elegant, high-toned white wine with a saline edge that makes it incredible at the table as well as a mouth watering aperitif. At under $20 it’s a steal, putting most Sancerre to shame at nearly twice the price.
Every year, this wine has proven to be a Nicholas Wines staple. The newly released 2022 Frenzy Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is a fabulous value white wine, loaded with green apples, pears and white peaches plus a hint of spice. It’s juicy and fresh, the perfect cocktail hour white. It’s what is referred to as the perfect ‘pool wine’. It’s great paired with just about anything or just enjoyed on its own.
The parcels here are situated on vast limestone deposits of lacustrine origin, a near-perfect mix of clay and prehistoric shells. On the surface, fine gravel left from when the river used to have a different route – keeps the vineyards super dry and incredibly distinctive. There are no other vineyards in the whole Centre-Val de Loire quite like them. The Sauvignon Blanc from here is pure, almost transparent with a touch of silver and features aromas of maritime salinity, lemon rind, and a touch of grapefruit. The whole mouthfeel is bold, fruity, and refreshing.
Just in time, we got back Vincent Ricard’s all-time great white wine bargain. This is a crisp, clean and flat out delicious Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc. The protege to the Silex-style of Dagueneau – who over the last 15 years has produced flawless and beloved white wines that at last count were on the wine lists of over 36 Michelin-starred restaurants. This is a great house white and one that can surely hold its own with just about everything on the table.
