CAPTURE SAUVIGNON BLANC "LES PIONNIERS" SONOMA COUNTY 2012 375ml HALF-BOTTLE

Wine Enthusiast

91 Points

This is the winery’s unoaked Sauvignon Blanc. What you get is pure fruit, although sur lie aging adds prominent notes of cream and yeasty sourdough. The fruit asserts itself in the form of pristine limes, Meyer lemons, peaches and mangoes. The acidity is vibrant and lifting, adding balance to the richness. The best Les Pionniers to date.  S.H.  (11/1/2013)

The 2012 Sauvignon Blanc Les Pionnieres (100% Sauvignon Blanc) was aged on its lees in stainless steel for five months. More honeyed melon and tropical fruit aromas are found in the bouquet along with a delicacy and complexity that are restrained yet intense. This medium-bodied Sauvignon possesses impressive minerality, wonderful fruit and a dry, crisp finish. It, too, should be consumed over the next 2-3 years, although I suspect these Sauvignons have the potential to last longer. WA # , #210 (Dec 2013) Drink 2013 - 2016

(aged on its lees for five months in stainless steel): Pale, bright silver-yellow. Aromas of melon and grapefruit complicated by musky quinine, minerals and herbal tea. Silky and rich but dry, with pineapple and grapefruit flavors accented by crushed stone. Not quite as intense or bracing as some recent vintages of this bottling but pliant, well-made and quite persistent. Stephen Tanzer May 2014
