In 2016 as the planets aligned, we decided that the time was right to put that “Bertheau” philosophy to the test. From the vineyard nestled in the redwood forest, we selected the very best grapes through multiple passes at harvest and with 50% whole cluster fermentation. We aged the wine in ONE 600 liter barrel, with this vintage we felt we it could age for an extended time…we waited, AND WAITED…for 28 Months…to create SOLITAIRE.

If you remember the story of “Never Say Never” and the adventure that produced 2010 L’Age D’Or Chardonnay, we made reference to another wine called Les Cailles. From a small section of the vineyard we fermented the grapes Sur Lie in Ermitage Cigar Barrels for 16 months.

The Inspiration and the Challenge

Having white Burgundies as benchmarks, especially the wines of Raveneau, Jobard, and Coche, we were never to anxious to even attempt to craft Chardonnay in the new world as we have always felt that the wines were over the top with buttery pop corn mouth feel, way too much oak, high alcohol and clunky to say the least -- they seem more like a martini than a Chardonnay. 

L'Age D'Or from the Russian River Valley is aged for 16 months in 600L thick stave barrels results in a Chardonnay of great elegance, length and verve; very Meursault-like.

St Andelain is our homage to the incomparable late Didier Dagueneau. Born from a single organic vineyard, the grapes were partially destemmed and allowed 36 hours of skin contact to create unique richness and depth. After pressing we barrel fermented and aged for 16 months in Didier’s creation, the Cigar Barrel.

This Syrah is a muscular, powerful wine with trademark Soliste elegance, length and balance. It has the finesse of a great Côte Rôtie or Hermitage but the animal power of a Cornas. It also has the ability to age for decades.

One Barrique, 100% Whole Cluster, 45 Month Élevage

In 2012, we singled out a unique barrique with the purest aromas and structure. The wine was aged for 45 months (nearly four years) until the Beast was tamed. La Sauvage is extraordinary in complexity and depth; a great paradox of muscular aromas and silky texture.
