Best White Wine of the Year!

Shared Notes is the winemaking joint-venture between wife and husband, Bibiana Gonzalez Rave (Cattleya & Pahlmeyer winemaker) and Jeff Pisoni (Pisoni, Lucia, Ft Ross winemaker)

Both had early desires of making wine, and spent most of their lives doing so. The year 2012, however, marked the first vintage that they produced together. Previously, during the grape harvest, Bibiana and Jeff were like the proverbial ships passing in the night. Early grape picks and late nights at the winery left them rarely crossing paths.

Now, Bibiana and Jeff do cross paths—to discuss ideas and taste samples. You can sometimes catch them in front of a grapevine, the press, a fermenting tank, or a barrel…most likely with a glass in hand.

Winery Notes: Vibrant and lively, the 2015 “Les leçons des maîtres” has an effusive nose with notes of orange blossoms, lemon  zest, white peach and gooseberry. This wine is a blend of 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Semillon aged in small oak barrels. The former gives the freshness of the aromatics and the later gives the structure and dense, limestone-like texture that fans out on the palate. A remarkable wine for drinking now or aging for many years.”

Jeb Dunnuck 96 Points: “While 2015 Les Pierres qui Décident(80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Semillon) is brought up in new barrels, you’d never know it and it has classic Bordeaux Blanc notes of green citrus, crushed rock, mineral water and hints of lychee. Medium-bodied, beautifully pure, elegant and yet serious, structured and lengthy, it’s unquestionably the best Sauvignon and Semillon blend I’ve tasted from California.”
