Bodegas Henri Lurton’s Le Sauvignon is a perfect example of why we’re so excited about the wines of the Valle de Guadalupe. The passion project of a French wine legend, this stunning Sauvignon Blanc harnesses Baja’s unique terroir to produce one of the more remarkable white wines we’ve tasted this year. With ripe fruit that’s balanced by electric acidity and mouth-watering minerality, it’s seriously delicious and a fantastic value.
Bodegas Henri Lurton’s namesake and founder is a man with the wine industry in his veins. The owner of Brane-Cantenac, an iconic Grand Cru Classé Château in Margaux, he’s a member of one of the most notable families in the vinous world—the Lurtons own more than 20 châteaux in Bordeaux alone. His founding of a winery in Baja was a major sign that the region was on a rocket-like trajectory, and they’ve been at the forefront of quality in the area ever since.
Their Sauvignon Blanc is of the standouts of the lineup, with bold tropical-inflected aromatics. They soar out of the glass, full of notes of passionfruit, green mango, and lemongrass, with an underlying minerality that builds remarkable complexity. The palate has ample richness, without any oak influence, and builds on the same dialectic of bold fruit and minerality that makes the nose so engrossing. The result is a wine that demands attention and respect, easily standing toe-to-toe with Napa examples costing twice as much.
