2017 LITTORAI B.A. Thieriot Vineyard Chardonnay 75cl (Sonoma Coast, California, USA)
Style - Rich
Grapes - 100% Chardonnay
Tasting - A tightly-wound young Chardonnay that offers compelling delicacy and power. Lots of citrus to balance the gentle peach and cooked pineapple flavours. A slightly buttery edge to the finish but this is a long way from the regular Cali cougar juice!
FYI: Littorai's Ted Lemon worked extensively in Burgundy earning himself the soubriquet 'Le Comte Citron'. Hence the crowned lemon on the label.
