Littorai, 2015 Littorai Chardonnay B.A. Thieriot Vineyard

95+
"Another alluring wine, the 2015 Chardonnay Thieriot Vineyard is the most vivid and sculpted of these Chardonnays, as it typically is. Here the flavors are finely sketched, with plenty of citrus, floral and mineral notes pushed forward. Deceptive in its mid-weight feel, the Thieriot packs a real punch. I would give the 2015 a year or two in bottle to unwind a bit. What a gorgeous and expressive wine this is."

Littorai

100% Chardonnay

West of the town of Occidental, on the south shoulder of a 1200 foot ridge. This is the cooler side of the hills around Occidental yet the vineyard is protected from the northwest winds and fog by a ridge to the north. It overlooks the fog filled gap in the Sonoma hills, which leads to Petaluma. Littorai Wines has a long term lease on this site and it is farmed using organic and biodynamic methods, but is not certified.

Littorai believes in minimal manipulation of their wines. Thus, almost all of the wines are bottles unfined and unfiltered. It is strongly recommended to let the bottle stand upright 24 hours before opening, as well as decanting off any sediment.
