Limited stock.

Sitting atop gravelly clay loam in an ancient riverbed thick with cobblestone, Les Pierres is from one of the most hallowed vineyards of Sonoma-Cutrer.

Each day, fog from San Pablo Bay arrives to temper the warm Sonoma Valley temperatures, resulting in a long growing season that allows for full maturation and ripening.

Full of deep, complex flavours that speak to the leanness of the soil, Les Pierres is a wine worthy of our Grand Cru approach.

Fine yellow-gold with perfect clarity, the wine displays distinct aromas of spice and lemon-lime over a pronounced flinty mineral backbone typical of the vineyard.

Signature flavours of green apple and lemon evolve to dried lemon peel and lime zest, while floral notes recall the acacia flowers of the Burgundy countryside in spring.

A broad mid-palate reveals a touch of spun honey. Careful oak ageing and fermentation impart a hint of fresh-baked bread crust.

The wine's structure is firm, focused and elegant, and the remarkably long finish is classic Les Pierres: tight, lemon-mineral, extending with great acidity. A Chardonnay for the ages - enjoy.
