There are over 30,000 cases of the 1997 Sauvignon Blanc, which is a terrific Sauvignon, with gobs of melony, floral, and honeyed fruit, medium body, a plush texture, and outstanding purity.

Cool lemon rind, spice and fresh herb aromas. Supple, creamy, ripe and satisfying...

This round white offers ripe flavors of apples and melons, with spicy notes that hint of cinnamon and clove. Not a typical Sauvignon Blanc, lively enough to bring you back for another sip. Drink now.

Metallic golden color. Medium-bodied. Moderately extracted. Ripe citrus, brown spice. Clean ripe citrusy aromas show a smoky note that follows through well on the palate. Brown spices linger on the finish. Ripe, straightforward style.

Perhaps the finest Sauvignon Blanc from South America, this Chilean white has honeyed melon and ripe fig flavors. The herbaceous quality of this varietal is very muted, mingled with a subtle mineral quality. It is superb with shellfish or simply on its own.

A crisp, dry Sauvignon Blanc that makes an excellent food wine. Its flavors of pineapple, figs, and grapefruit are accompanied by loads of minerality; even without food you'll soon be reaching for a second glass.

Winemaker's Notes:

Casa Lapostolle has been founded by the Marnier Lapostolle family from France and the Rabat family from Chile in 1994, through Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle, her husband Cyril de Bournet and Don José Rabat Gorchs. Today, Casa Lapostolle is 100% owned by the Marnier-Lapostolle group. The Marnier Lapostolle family, founders and owners of the world-renowned liqueur Grand Marnier, are known for producing spirits and liqueurs, but the family has been also involved in winemaking for generations. Originally winegrowers in the Loire Valley, the Marnier Lapostolle continue this vintner tradition today as owners of Château de Sancerre. This delightful Sauvignon evokes elegant aromas of white nectarine, pear and white flowers, with some citrus fruit and tangerine notes, and fresh herbs and mineral notes at the end. Medium-bodied with a concentrated mid-palate and a long, fresh finish.
