Les Pierres 1.5L

2016 Chardonnay

Delight guests with a magnum centerpiece! Bright citrus aromas of lemon and lemon blossom shine through, highlighted by peach, caramel and oak spice with just a hint of cedar and Les Pierres’ classic minerality. The wine has a tightly focused mouthfeel with Sonoma-Cutrer’s signature bright and lively citrus-laced acidity.

The Making Of

The Les Pierres Vineyard sits atop the gravelly clay loam of an ancient riverbed, thick with cobbled stones that infuse the grapes – and the wine – with a varied mineral essence.

Virtual Swirl

Tasting wine begins well before the liquid ever touches your lips - it starts with a look, a swirl, and an intake of breath. The swirl serves to open your vintage and introduces oxygen which creates a bouquet of aromas and allows you to gauge viscosity and alcohol content. Our Les Pierres’ swirl showcases its beautiful straw coloring indicative of a well-crafted Chardonnay and highlights aromas of citrus, mineral notes, and spice that integrate nicely with grapefruit and lime.
