Littorai Charles Heintz Vineyard Chardonnay 2019


In Stock

“The 2019 Chardonnay Charles Heintz Vineyard shows the textural pliancy typical of this site, while also retaining terrific freshness and verve, with fewer of the tropical overtones that are often found in Heintz Chardonnays. All the elements are so impeccably balanced. Drinking window: 2021-2029. 94 points

Ted Lemon describes 2019 as year with a good deal of rain early on and average crop levels. Harvest began on September 3, moderately early, but more or less in line with historical norms, and wrapped up on October 8. I thought the Anderson Valley Pinots were especially fine this year, but all the Pinots are marked by energy and the purity of flavor that is such a house signature. A recent bottle of the 2017 Wendling Pinot Noir reminded me of how these wines really blossom with a bit of time in bottle. Lastly, the 2019 Chardonnays are also absolutely brilliant across the board, another reminder of just how strong the vintage has turned out to be for Chardonnay.”
