2008 Littorai "Mays Canyon" Russian River Valley Chardonnay

SKU #1093806 92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2008 Chardonnay Mays Canyon is in a perfect spot to drink now, although it has remarkable freshness and will hold for at least another handful of years. The bright, floral notes typical of this site are present, but the fruit has begun to acquire more depth, richness and darkness, with apricot pit, peach, smoke, spice and roasted nut overtones. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2016)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2008 Chardonnay Mays Canyon (73 cases produced from a biodynamically farmed vineyard) reveals copious aromas of white peaches, apricots and nectarines intermingled with hints of earth and spice, crisp acids and a medium to full-bodied, pure, fresh, lively style. It should drink well for 5-6 years. Winemaker/proprietor Ted Lemon has one of the most impressive resumes in California having produced Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs in that state as well as previously working in Burgundy. His wines consistently represent the best of California’s ripeness combined with Burgundy’s finesse and elegance. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2011)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Very pale color. Pretty aromas of white peach, lemon, mint and flowers, with a minerally nuance adding complexity. Juicy, pure and laid-back; a very floral, delicate style of Chardonnay, almost Chablis-like in its austerity today. I suspect this is still a bit stunted from the recent bottling. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2010)
