Winemaker's Notes

Named for the iconic, cigar-shaped barrels we use to ferment and age this wine, our 2021 En Cigare boasts lovely notes of Asian pear, baking spice, lemongrass, satsuma and a hint of hazelnut. A 50/50 blend of Sauvignon Musque and a new selection from Sancerre, Clone 242, the palate is dense and lush. Extended lees contact and 11 months “en cigare” have heightened flavors of citrus, acacia blossom and grapefruit. The lengthy finish of this beautiful Sauvignon Blanc is crisp and inviting.
