Coeur à Coeur Les Pavots Vineyard, Sonoma County Translated from the French: heart to heart

Coeur à Coeur
Estate Sauvignon Blanc/Sémillon

The second of our estate-grown Sémillon/Sauvignon Blanc blends, Coeur à Coeur is equal parts of each grape, resulting in a broad palette and fleshy texture. As with L’Après-Midi, the fruit is grown at elevation and is a product of the maritime influence and steep slopes found at 1,000 – 1,200 feet above sea level. We whole cluster-press the grapes and forgo the second malolactic fermentation in order to preserve their vibrancy. The varietals are aged separately on their lees, with gentle bâtonnage before assembly of the final cuvée.

The name Coeur à Coeur was inspired by the romantic and precious nature of this very small bottling.
