100% Sauvignon Blanc


White Bluffs AVA


Drink Now or Age 3 to 7 Years


Sagemoor Bacchus

2020 Marguerite

The 18 months in élevage and extended time in bottle has certainly succeeded in creating much pleasure for our 2020 Marguerite.  This beautifully concentrated 100% Sauvignon Blanc is exploding with notes of grapefruit, fuzzy peach, vanilla brioche and lemon curd.  The generous palate is focused, nervy, and has an energy that lifts this wine to another level.  There is a flicker of reduction that plays wonderfully with the rich oak and lees characteristics.  Enjoy now or cellar for 10-15 years to experience even more complexity as time shapes this serious effort.

A tiny barrel selection cuvée based on 100% Sauvignon Blanc, the 2019 Sauvignon Blanc Marguerite has a great nose of honeyed white grapefruit, spicy oak, exotic flowers, and obvious minerality. Rich and concentrated on the palate, yet with a terrific sense of freshness, it needs a year or two to integrate its oak, but it’s beautifully done. It should evolve gracefully given its concentration and balance.

Behind the Wine

2020 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


Sagemoor Bacchus, one of Washington’s premier vineyards, is home to a 1972 planting of Sauvignon Blanc. These old vines are key to DeLille’s Chaleur Blanc program, and are the sole planting used in Marguerite.
