Les Pierres 1.5L

2015 Chardonnay

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.

Recipes & Pairings

How to Create the Perfect Pairing

Over the years, we have found our bright and lively Les Pierres Chardonnay pairs perfectly with salmon, mild curries, and vegetable terrine.

  • Salmon

  • Lamb

  • Curry (mild)

  • Prawns

  • Vegetable Terrine

Thai Coconut Shrimp Curry

Prepared Thai curry pastes are easily found at Southeast Asian markets or on-line. Note that curry pastes can differ in their intensity and heat so you might start by adding a little less the first time and adding more to taste. Add whatever vegetables you like to this curry. Pairs well with The Cutrer Chardonnay.

Pan Roasted Salmon With Green Goddess Dressing

Green Goddess dressing was created in San Francisco in 1920 at the Palace Hotel to honor the British actor, George Arliss, who was starring in a play there called The Green Goddess. This rich dish is wonderful when paired with the equally rich Founder’s Reserve Legacy Chardonnay. With this recipe, you’ll have enough vinaigrette and Green Goddess dressing left over to use for other salads.

BBQ Shrimp with Peach Chutney

This may seem like a complicated recipe but it’s really not and brings together two favorite accompaniments for the summer barbecue: Peach chutney and coffee barbecue sauce. Make both of these a day or two ahead and store refrigerated. Keep the leftovers on hand to use with grilled chicken or pork. A glass of chilled Sonoma-Cutrer Les Pierres Chardonnay paired with this dish would be the perfect way to celebrate the summer holidays.
