Review:
Clean lines of chalk, lime peel and juiced citrus meet with a strongly grassy streak on the nose of this Sancerre-esque bottling. A grippy tension grabs hold of the palate, where pomelo skin and more grass tones carry into a zesty finish.

Review:
Lieu Dit's 2018 Sauvignon Blanc is done in a bright style that emphasizes the greener, grassier side of Sauvignon. I would prefer to drink this delicious, refreshing Sauvignon over the next 2-3 years.
