Domaine Mauro Guicheney Côtes de Duras Blanc, “À l'abri du Monde” 2019

$21
Corine’s “À l’abri du Monde” Blanc, which translates to “Shelter from the World,” blends 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Sauvignon Gris from upper-hill parcels of poor limestone-heavy soil. Spontaneously fermented, it is both vinified and aged in stainless steel, spending the better part of a year on its fine lees; it undergoes a slow and natural malolactic fermentation, and is bottled with no additions except a touch of sulfur. Precise, clean, and chiseled, it leads with minerality rather than fruit, and its texture is simultaneously generous and refined.
