In English, ‘Les pierres qui décident’ translates into ‘the rocks that decide’ and it is the perfect way to describe this mineral-driven, Loire-style Sauvignon Blanc (think Didier Dagueneau’s great Whites). The 2018 Les pierres qui décident starts with citrus notes—orange blossom, key lime, blood orange—with additional notes of ocean mist and flinty minerality. The palate is refreshing and texturally precise, providing a great match for many foods or aging in the cellar. This exciting Sauvignon Blanc project is brought to us by husband and wife team Jeff Pisoni (of Pisoni Vineyards) and Bibiana Pisoni (of Wayfarer and Pahlmeyer). They chose to make Sauvignon Blanc together because neither have worked on producing it for their own wineries they represent, and they loved the idea of bringing to the table two distinctly different SBs. This one was our favorite. 95 cases were produced.
