2018 Crittenden Cri de Coeur Savangnin Sous Voile, Top 100 Wines - 15th Place
"An absolutely brilliant wine, year in and out, at least since its inception six years ago. There is no other wine like it in the New World and superior it is, in fact, to many whence it was inspired in the Jura. Full-weighted by virtue of the surface yeasts, or voile, under which the wine was aged. Untopped in oak for four years. Scintillating aromas of curry powder, chamomile, Japanese pickled radish, washed rind cheese, preserved Moroccan lemon and salted nuts. Intense. Yet so compelling. This is only the superficial layer. Beneath, orange pekoe, ginger and cardamon. A wine for nerds, perhaps. But if you like the Jura or great sherry, this is a wine that will blow your mind. A thrill ride for the versatile table. Drink or hold ... for a long time."
