La Follette is a boutique Sonoma County winery intensely focused on crafting wines that offer benchmark expression of vineyard site and appellation. Led by winemaker Greg La Follette, the portfolio of small lot Chardonnay and Pinot Noir releases offer a sensory tour of terroir of some of the most expressive and interesting vineyards in Sonoma and Mendocino County.
WINEMAKER'S NOTES: This Chardonnay offers a bouquet of citrus zest, brioche and lemon verbena that continues to develop with time in the glass. A satiny entry of lemon-curd and Asian pear notes transitions to a core of bright acidity, a result of the partial malolactic fermentation of the stainless steel tank lots. Caramelized green apple and a hint of toast mark the finish. Both elegant and energetic, our North Coast Chardonnay is a harmonious blend of tank and barrel fermentations, decidedly coastal in structure.
