Within a week of Labor Day 2018, Jean-François Pellet had taken what he wanted from Seven Hills, Summit View and Les Collines vineyards for this wine that is unmistakably Sauvignon Blanc, even though Sèmillon (9%) plays a small role. Rather than stainless steel, lots matured either in neutral French oak (58%) or concrete egg. Preserves the broad features of gooseberry, fresh-mowed grass and Italian lime soda with a definite sense of “meow.” It’s done bone-dry with enjoyable acidity that’s capped by a scrape of lime zest. The following for this Sauv Blanc has prompted Pepper Bridge to nearly double its production since 2015.
Production: 344 cases
