Shared Notes winery ranks with the finest producers of distinctive Sauvignon Blanc around.—Connoisseurs’ Guide to California Wine
Shared Notes is the winemaking joint-venture between wife and husband, Bibiana González Rave and Jeff Pisoni.
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.
These are both going to be very long-lived whites.—Jeb Dunnuck
Les leçons des maîtres
Lessons of the masters
- Style: A blend inspired by the cellar masters of Bordeaux and their dedication to Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.
- Variety: 72% Sauvignon Blanc / 28% Semillon
- AVA: Russian River Valley - Sonoma County
A true homage to this legendary Bordeaux blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, the 2020 Shared Notes Les leçons des maîtres is a stunning example of the old adage that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Incredibly bright notes of Key lime, crisp pear, and grapefruit are enveloped with generous, rich aromas of honeysuckle and juicy white peach. As this wine coats the palate, flavors of nectarine and citrus zest are given added volume and supple texture through the inclusion of Semillon and the wines extended lees contact in new French oak barrels. Though a true delight when consumed in its infancy, the lessons of these masters will surely continue to evolve and mature well into the next decade.

Les pierres qui décident
The rocks that decide
