Incroyable! A SIX-YEAR Vertical of Sonatera Vineyard MonoClone Pinot Noir

Celebrating the Holiday season and the end of 2021 by returning to our roots where it all started at Soliste


In Stock
Sorry! The Sonatera Vertical is Sold out! Individual wines are available with special pricing however.

In Burgundy, a winemaker may reserve a special barrel for friends and family. They call this barrel Soliste. GRANDS CHARMES defines the origin and the promise of Soliste. From one barrel only 23 cases of 750s were produced and bottled and waxed by hand. Although it hurts to part with so few bottles, sharing this special release with you, the very few that have been loyal supporters of our journey, fills us with joy and pride.

We realized we had a unique and rare opportunity to create a Single Cuvee from the other great  MonoClone® barrels from each of our vineyards. We blended the best barrels together and aged to harmonize the once separated wines to craft Narcisse Pinot Noir -- an exceptional wine of great depth, fruit concentration and elegance, a pure representation of Soliste wines.

Sonatera 2015…where it all began, circa 2005.

Sonatera is one of those unique vineyard sites that truly exemplifies the Soliste philosophy and style. The hilltop vineyard has three different exposures, facing north, south, and west. This geography funnels brisk marine winds over the vines reducing vigor, extending the ripening period of the grapes, and allowing distinctive aromatics to develop. Once you have tasted Sonatera Pinot Noir, you will always be able to identify its origins.

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.

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.
