Introducing Les Cailles Chardonnay 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. We said that if 2010 Les Cailles was not ready to release, we would not. To date, we remain unhappy with the 2010 vintage of this wine and keeping true to our promise, if we don’t love to drink it we won’t sell it. Fortunately, the 2011 vintage is a different story. From a small section of the vineyard we fermented the grapes in concrete eggs from Burgundy for 11 months, then transferred to 100% neutral French oak and aged for an additional 11 months. The combination preserved acidity and liveliness, and we share it with you now. Aromas of Puligny Montrachet 2010 L'Age D'Or Label 2010 Soliste Chardonnay Les Cailles, Russian River Valley Tasting Notes The wine reveals sumptuous aromas of flint, lemon curd and white orchard fruits laced with rose petals and chalk. The soft and smooth aromas are followed seamlessly from the nose by a complex and zesty infusion of buttery pears, apricots and lemon curd, accented by a fresh texture of white peaches and ripe grapefruit. The middle palette carries on with an impressive creamy density; salted buttery caramel intertwined with green tart apple and toasted nuts. The finish is all about precision and acid minerality, it is broad, weighty with a firm acid spine. Finesse, length, and elegance…….Soliste 13.6% alc. 69 cases
