Delight guests with a magnum centerpiece! Bright citrus aromas of lemon and lemon blossom shine through, highlighted by peach, caramel and oak spice with just a hint of cedar and Les Pierres’ classic minerality. The wine has a tightly focused mouthfeel with Sonoma-Cutrer’s signature bright and lively citrus-laced acidity.
Les Pierres is a beautiful, pale straw color with a slightly green hue. This particular vintage is richly aromatic with bright citrus of lemon curd and Meyer lemon highlighted by peach, baking spice with just a hint of cedar and Les Pierres’ classic chalk and slate minerality. Sunny citrus flavors, melon and lime are well integrated with the oak and complemented with flavors of roasted nuts, spice, and mineral notes.Download Winemaker Notes
Lying at the southern end of the Sonoma Coast appellation is our Les Pierres vineyard. What was once the site of a rock quarry, this soil is 50-70% rock content, which infuses this wine with a mineral essence. This high rock content puts considerable stress on the vines. The nutritional deficiencies and poor water retention of the soil drastically reduces the size of both clusters and individual berries.
