Les Pierres Vineyard 1.5L

2019 Chardonnay

Les Pierres is a beautiful, pale straw color with a slightly green hue. This particular vintage is richly aromatic with bright citrus of lemon curd and Meyer lemon highlighted by peach, baking spice with just a hint of cedar and Les Pierres’ classic chalk and slate minerality. Sunny citrus flavors, melon and lime are well integrated with the oak and complemented with flavors of roasted nuts, spice, and mineral notes. The wine has a beautifully balanced mouthfeel with Sonoma-Cutrer’s signature citrus-laced acidity and a long, juicy barrel spice finish that lingers on the palate.

About this Wine

Les Pierres Vineyard 1.5L

Each vintage of Les Pierres exemplifies our Grand Cru approach to winemaking. Grapes are hand-harvested in shallow bins to ensure they arrive at the winery in perfect condition. While fruit awaits sorting, grapes are kept cool to preserve the fruit’s fresh flavors and natural acidity. After hand-sorting, the grapes are wholecluster pressed to avoid bitter tannins. The cool, golden-green, free-run juice settles naturally in tanks for 24 hours and is racked and yeasted before heading to French oak barrels for fermentation. One hundred percent of the vintage is barrel-fermented on the lees in one-year-old oak for five months. Individual block components are then blended to create the cuvée and placed in three-year-old oak for additional aging. Bottled in February 2021 the wine was bottle-aged for an additional six months before releasing.

This vintage is classic Les Pierres. In your glass, the wine is a beautiful, pale straw color with tinges of green that catch the light. Rich aromatic notes of lime zest, wet stone, lemon meringue pie, citrus blossom and bright, lemon curd greet your senses as you swirl to open up the aromas. A beautifully balanced mouthfeel combines with Sonoma-Cutrer’s signature citrus-laced acidity that showcases nice oak integration and flavors of melon, lime, mineral, roasted nuts, and spice. On the palate this is an elegant, light creamy wine that dissolves to a long, juicy, lingering spice finish. Bottled in February 2021, the wine was bottle-aged for an additional six months before releasing.

Appellation

Les Pierres

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. The rocks absorb sunlight and slowly release heat to the vines. When combined with the cool fog that tempers the warm Sonoma Valley temperature, the result is a long growing season that allows the fruit to ripen and reach full maturation.
