Premier Wine Company, Richmond CA.
100% Sauvignon Blanc from estate vineyards around Saint-Laurent l’Abbaye, Tracy and St-Martin-sur-Nohain. Grown in argiles à silex (Pouilly Fumé’s clay-flint soil base) and raised in steel. No malo.
Three years on.
Emerald. It’s less smoky (and less pyrazine) than the ’13 and ’14. White currant and chocolate mint and a notion of early spring, before the leaves but right at the peak of the blossoms. Now.
