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.
Pair with lamb, prawns, salmon and vegetable terrine.
90 Connoisseurs' Guide
A rich, very well-made, moderately full-bodied Chardonnay long on clean-as-can-be, ripe apple fruit, Sonoma-Cutrer’s Les Pierres bottling sports a judicious dollop of sweet and creamy oak that enhances rather than challenges its wonderfully juicy fruitiness. It still has the sense of a youthful wine that will develop more complexity and layering with time, and we do see it rewarding a few more years of age, but Chardonnay lovers who are short on patience will find it an immensely tasty effort that requires no further cellaring to please.
