LEVEL (3) WHITE WINE

2013 MAISON HARBOUR 1er CRU EN CAILLERET CHASSAGNE-MONTRACHET

“Pale gold color. Nose of white flowers, stone fruits, crushed rocks. Rich, supple, and ripe in the mouth, with fresh, clean flavors of peach, apricot, baking spice, finishing long with nice white citrus acidity. Cailleret is the largest and is recognized among the best of the premier cru vineyards in Chassagne. The grapes for this wine come from the upper part of the vineyard, primarily marl (for weight) and lower white calcareous soil (for elegance) to make a delicious, balanced wine.” 2 Barrels Produced 

2020 KISTLER SONOMA MOUNTAIN CHARDONNAY

We guide our fermentations with as little intervention as possible. Our entire process is designed to enhance the characters of the individual sites, relative to one another, to peel back further layers as opposed to leaving our mark on the wine. Our fermentations are conducted solely with native yeasts, at moderately cool temperatures and with little to no machination of the fruit.”

2019 LIQUID FARM FOUR SANTA RITA HILLS CHARDONNAY

The 2019 Chardonnay Four is stunning, with a detailed, singular perfume of baked apples and preserved lemon with touches of curry spice and graphite. The full-bodied palate is satiny and textural, combining nutty, honeyed fruits, tangy acidity and stony mineral character, and it finishes with tremendous length. What an incredible expression!”

The 2019 Chardonnay Four is translucent, nuanced and wonderfully expressive wine that captures all of the raciness that makes the Liquid Farms Chardonnays so immensely appealing.  The Four is a blend of Rita’s Crown, La Rinconada, Spear and Bentrock, a pretty remarkable collection of sites by any measure. Tangerine oil, mint, butter, hazelnut and lightly honeyed accents build into a creamy, resonant finish.” 95 Points

2021 SHARED NOTES LES LECONS DES MAITRES SAUVIGNON BLANC BLEND

Possessing a striking and radiant light green hue, the 2021 Les leçons des maîtres harkens back to the legendary cuvées of these famed varietals born from the rocky soils of Bordeaux. Beautifully pure notes of lemon oil, lime zest, and Ruby grapefruit set the pace, as heady aromas of white peach and crushed rock bring up the rear. This classic blend of 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Semillon creates a wine of two distinct parts, yet harmonizes into one seamless experience. Bracing acidity cuts a razor sharp edge though a supple, textured roundness brought on by the addition of Semillon and 100% new French oak aging. This simply stunning blend will continue to age gracefully for as long as the temptation of removing the cork can be resisted.” ~ Made by Jeff Pisoni & Bibiana González Rave

2019 MORLET LES PETITS SAUVIGNON BLANC

The entry-level Sauvignon Blanc from this family, the 2019 Sauvignon Blanc Les Petits Morlet reveals a vivid gold hue and textbook, crisp yet also rich aromas and flavors of buttered lemons, hazelnuts, chalky minerality, honeysuckle, and white flowers. With bright, almost racy acidity, beautiful depth of fruit, and medium-bodied richness, this has some solid heft and richness and will shine on the dinner table. It’s a brilliant Sauvignon to enjoy over the coming 2-4 years.”

“The 2020 Chardonnay One-Sixteen is sunny with notes of beeswax, orange zest, and baked apple. It has rich concentration and texture, with a spine of acidity. Notes of Meyer lemon, and almond, and warming baking spice fill out the palate.”
