Sans Liege Côtes-du-Coast – 750ML

WA 92

A treasure holds no value until it has been fought for. Aspiring to create a worthy homage to something precious and revered, I sourced the hillsides to f ind the vines for this Cotes- du-Coast. I take no credit for the soul of this wine. Its lineage is ancient; its roots, deep.

Sans Liege is my relentless search for independence. Equally aligned with
the freedoms of the New World and the heritage of the Rhône Valley, I am careful not to hold too closely to either. Tending fruit in vineyards that have captured my heart from Paso Robles down to Solvang, these sites speak for me and I for them; the only partners now on this path I tread.
– Curt Schalchlin, Winemaker

Tasting Notes

Daylight wanes and a new energy pulses through the redwoods. As the lanterns are lit you take in scents of honeysuckle, lemongrass tea and shale. You are now dancing and laughing with mirth as you pass by a rustic dessert table. It is set with creme brulee and miniature vanilla spice cakes adorned with orange blossoms. Children run past snacking on jazz apples and dried pineapple and you smile with gratitude for the day.

Wine Advocate

Made up of 33% Viognier, 30% Roussanne, 27% Grenache Blanc and 10% Marsanne, the 2017 Côtes du Coast is vivaciously scented of musk, lychee, honeysuckle, warm peach cobbler and pie crust with nuances of pineapple, lime peel, stone and yeasty note. Medium to full-bodied, it has a slightly oily texture and tons of perfumed fruits, with juicy acidity to counter and a long, textured finish. - E.B.
