La Pitchoune

2015 chardonnay - pratt vineyard

Russian River


Hazy golden-yellow in color, aromas of tangerine oil, Meyer lemon blossom, green apple skin, and yeasted dough that are highlighted by an underlying flinty, smoky component.  Rich flavors of ripe Gravenstein apples, lemon curd tartlet, and roasted hazelnuts coalesce on a lingering, minerality marked the finish. Drinking well now, but expect this wine to drastically improve with another 6 to 12 months of cellaring.  This wine should provide 5-8 years of extraordinary drinking experiences.

"94 points - La Pitchoune's single vineyard bottling from the Pratt Vineyard is an outstanding effort. As this slowly begins to unwind it releases alluring aromatics of Meyer lemon curd, pear, ginger, white nectarine, hazelnut and spring flowers. The mouthfeel is excellent, showing fantastic weight and a luscious creamy texture. Gorgeous flavors flavors of citrus, orchard fruits, lemongrass and custard are coupled with lovely minerality. A delicious Chardonnay that is accessible today, yet should continue to drink beautifully over the course of the next decade." International Wine Report
