Les Pierres Vineyard

2019 Chardonnay

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.

About this Wine

Les Pierres Vineyard

The rains came and just kept coming. The almost double the average rainfall for the year combined with additional late spring rains, led our harvest season to kick off with a late and slow start. Throughout the summer, we saw no weather extremes – just superb California weather that set the stage for a great year. 

On September 3rd, a week behind normal, harvest began with our southernmost estate vineyard, Les Pierres. The entire harvest remained steady throughout as did the weather. The result was one of our longest crush periods at well over six weeks. The long, even hang time for the fruit has yielded a true classic Chardonnay vintage.

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.

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.
