100% Sauvignon Blanc


White Bluffs AVA


Drink Now or Age 10-15 Years


Sagemoor Bacchus

2021 Marguerite

The 18 months in élevage and extended time in the bottle prior to release has created a complex 100% Sauvignon Blanc, with an intensity not easily attained by this aromatic varietal. The 2021 Marguerite is delectably rich, layered with intoxicating aromas of mango, apricot and guava. The texture is quite creamy with surprising secondary notes of brioche and vanilla, both results of barrel influence and extended lees contact. These characteristics are balanced by bright notes of lemon curd and oyster shell with a lovely hint of white flowers on the finish. Enjoy now or cellar for 10-15 years.

Fragrant and rich sauvignon Blanc showing aromas of lemon curd, elderflowers, jasmine, cedar and Asian pears, with a touch of nutmeg. Full-bodied, complex and full of flavor, with delicious toasty and tropical undertones. Lots going on. From vines planted in 1972. Matured in 75% new barrels. Drink or hold.

Behind the Wine

2021 Marguerite

The Marguerite daisy, a flower symbolizing devotion and patience, lends its name to this cuvée. DeLille Cellars has crafted Sauvignon Blanc for over a quarter century, traditionally aging the wines for six months in barrel. For Marguerite, the very best wines are selected to remain in barrel for an additional year. Loyally tended in barrel, this, our best Sauvignon Blanc, is bottled separately, then rested in bottle another year before release. “Maybe the best white wine yet to come from Washington. The streak of fabulous DeLille white wines continues but reaches new heights with this wine. One of the great Sauvignon Blancs produced in America, and I think this is Pessac-Leognan Grand Cru level quality; it’s terrific wine. Specific fruit selection, unique barrel aging, and judicious blending by Jason and his team have created a real masterpiece here. It’s got extraordinary dimension, expression, and harmony; generous yellow fig, fragrant lemon, grass, pear, spiced apple, a little tropical nuance. Long litany of descriptors here. It’s dry, yet weighty; unctuous, yet bright. A complete wine, this thing has it all.” – Bob Betz
