Littorai B.A. Thieriot Vineyard Chardonnay 2017

Littorai B.A. Thieriot Vineyard Chardonnay 2017

Availability: Out of stock


"The 2017 Chardonnay Thieriot Vineyard is another highly expressive wine in this range. The Thieriot had a bit more viscosity than the Mays Canyon, but it remains very much within the realm of the brisk, acid-driven style that is such a signature of this site in Occidental. Lemon confit, white flowers and almond all develop in the glass, but, as always, the Thieriot Chardonnay is a wine of textural feel more than anything else. 90-93 points

As usual, Ted Lemon offers terrific perspective that comes from both experience and working across a number of sites in both Sonoma and Anderson Valley. Lemon told me he saw more fruit that needed to be sorted out because of heat in Anderson Valley than in Sonoma. "Two thousand seventeen was a warm year," Ted Lemon opined. "But I also saw many days with wider temperature gradients from coastal to inland sites than I am used to." As for the wines, they are superb. Among the 2017s, my impression is that the Pinots have a bit more potential than the Chardonnays. The Wendling in particular is shaping up to be a real gem. The bottled 2016s have turned out as I had expected."
