Lieu Dit Chenin Blanc 2017

One of the most expressive wines of this Loire-focussed Santa Barbara-based producer. The 2017 is particularly perfumed, generous and inviting. A partnership of longtime friends Eric Railsback and Justin Willettwho were among a small group of young winemakers and restaurateurs in Santa Barbara unified by a common interest in wine. After countless bottles shared and many trips to France, Railsback and Willett decided to found Lieu Dit in 2011 and focus it solely in the varieties indigenous to the Loire Valley, now grown in Santa Barbara County. The varied micro-climates and marine based soils of Santa Barbara County are ideally suited to this set of grapes. Lieu Dit centers on Sauvignon Blanc and more limited bottlings of Chenin Blanc, Cabernet Franc and Rose and produces around 2500 cases annually. Each vintage, the quest for purity, elegance, and balance in every wine is paramount. 93 Vinous 90 RP
