This wine is all but Blank, as the name implies. The direct press of Sauvignon grapes from Laurent’s oldest vines give this white a dense and deeply beautiful texture. It’s sweetly savoury, at first it reminds you of sour sweets, then grows to finish into an elegant herb and eucalyptus medium bodied white. Blank is Bold!
Laurent is a Frenchman who moved to New York as a young man, helping to open Balthazar and then starting one of the first natural wine bars in New York. Eventually he made the move into producing himself. He started off working for other growers, principally Noella Morantin, making his own wines on the side, but when the historic Clos Roche Blanche vineyard came up for sale, he in conjunction with another of our producers Julien Pineau, bought the vineyard from Didier & Catherine and split the vineyard between them.
