2019 Clos De Tue-Bœuf Le Buisson Pouilleux

White

$65

100% very old vines Sauvignon - from a 1.1 ha block, it is in some ways the Petit Buisson's older sibling and almost unlike any other Sauvignon Blanc that you can imagine.
Once picked, the grapes are transferred to the winery, by refrigerated truck if necessary, and are fermented with absolute minimal intervention; the juice is pressed and decanted and transferred for fermentation into cask, where the wine remains on its lees until it is bottled straight from this vessel, without racking. Bright light lemon with floral lift and with intense stony minerality and brilliant notes of honeysuckle, verbena and hedgerow. This is a seriously good and very rare wine that will bring smiles all round and don't forget to put some away in the cellar!
