Antonio Galloni’s Praise for 2015 Sauvignon Blancs

Sonoma’s Sensational 2015s

Wife and husband team Bibiana-Gonzalez Rave and Jeff Pisoni make some of the most remarkable whites in Sonoma County under their Shared Notes label. Both wines take their inspiration from the dry whites of Bordeaux. The Les Leçons des Maîtres is a Sauvignon/Semillon blend, while the Les Pierres qui Décident is 100% Sauvignon Blanc.  – Vinous

2015 Les lecons des maîtres – 93

The 2015 Les Pierres qui Décident is rich, sensual and inviting. Jasmine, white pepper and mint open up gracefully. The Sauvignon Blanc is felt in the wine’s aromatic profile, while the Semillon adds creaminess through the middle. Drink this sensual, inviting white over the next few years.


2015 Les pierres qui décident – 94

The 2015 Les Pierres qui Décident is bright, finely sculpted and loaded with Sauvignon Blanc energy. Citrus, sage, tomato leaf and green pear give the wine its translucent, chiseled personality. Crystalline and nuanced to the core, the 2015 is super-expressive. Hints of green pear, sage, mint and tomato leaf punctuate the finish. Les Pierres qui Décident is one of the most distinctive Sauvignon Blancs being made in California today.
