“Sauvignon Blanc Sensation!”

From Sancerre To New Zealand, Lieu Dit Has It All!

By David Gettenberg

If you like Sancerre, you'll love Lieu Dit. If you just can't get enough New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc... Lieu Dit. If you dabble in white Bordeaux, you guessed it, Lieu Dit.

With a passion for French wines, owner/winemaker Justin Willet showcases the expressive nature of the Loire Valley varieties; in this instance, Sauvignon Blanc.

Retaining the minerality and chalky texture admired out of Sancerre, Lieu Dit is surprisingly light on its feet with lime, mint, lychee and herbal notes with a crisp, racy and make-you-salivate finish.

Deviating from the California style of rich, ripe fruit, Willet's goal is to make leaner, more mineral driven styled wines with restraint. Mission accomplished! Lieu Dit Sancerre (oops, we mean Lieu Dit Sauvignon Blanc) will make Merry Edwards green with envy and Cloudy Bay cry.

With its bright acidity, salads are an obvious choice; but, feel free to pair this sensational Sauvignon Blanc with oysters, goat cheese, and sushi.
