2009 Littorai "B.A. Thieriot Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

SKU #1151135 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2009 Chardonnay Thieriot is the earthiest and most mineral-driven of the 2009 Chardonnays. Slate, crushed rocks, lemon, grapefruit and white flowers are some of the many notes that emerge from this wine. Don’t look for size here, this is all about detail, nuance and class. It is without question one of the very finest Chardonnays of the vintage. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2012)

Outer quote mark Of the 2009 Chardonnays that I tasted during my visit to Littorai, the Thieriot showed the best early spine of acidity and looked the most likely to age along the more customary lines of Littorai Chardonnays. The bouquet is deep, pure and stunning, as it soars from the glass in a beautiful mélange of lemon, pear, gentle leesy tones, a wonderful base of soil, acacia blossoms, a touch of almond and a deft framing of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and very racy, with excellent focus and balance, superb complexity and impressive grip on the very long, almost Meursault-like finish. High class juice. Inner quote mark (5/2011)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Musky, slightly reduced aromas of peach, orange blossom, hazelnut, minerals, nuts and fennel; the most Burgundian of this set of Chardonnays. Dense, chewy and intensely flavored, with lively acidity framing the tactile stone fruit, mint, vanilla and toast flavors. Very nicely integrated Chardonnay with a long, vibrant finish.

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Fresh and vibrant, with a mix of subtle pear, nutmeg, mineral and sage notes. Full-bodied, yet so tightly wound it begs for cellar time. (JL) Inner quote mark (12/2011)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Smoky reductive burgundian nose. Fine citrus freshness. Big and rich but finely balanced on the palate. Powerful, relatively oaky and yet lovely freshness and refinement. So moreish and mouthwatering. Flattering as it opened up even though it seemed closed at first. 18/20 points (JH) Inner quote mark (9/2013)
