Alexander Valley Vineyards Chardonnay 2012 
Characteristics: "Our estate is bordered by the Russian River and since 1975 we have showcased this location with our Estate Chardonnay. The vines are planted on some of the coolest sites on our estate where daily fog is the norm. During the growing season the temperature drops between 40 to 50 degrees from day to nighttime.
2012 was a textbook growing season in Northern California with more heat accumulation days than in previous years. Moderate temperatures at bloom resulted in greater fruit set than 2011.

Consistent mild to warm days without serious heat spikes during early ripening produced heavier clusters and cluster thinning happened more than once in many blocks. The favorable weather allowed the Chardonnay grapes to reach optimal flavor development.

We harvest 70% of our Chardonnay at night when the grapes are coolest to retain the natural acidity, then cold ferment those lots in stainless steel, without malolactic fermentation or barrel aging to highlight the citrus and green apple flavors. To add balance to the wine, we whole cluster press 30% of the best fruit and barrel ferment that portion in French Oak barrels. The barrel fermented lots undergo malolactic fermentation and age on the lees for 6-8 months to develop roundness and body."

Barraud Pouilly Fuisse La Roche 2007 
Characteristics: Here the thin soils show themselves which in the 2007s is a terrific complexity. The nose is stoney, chalky. Quince, preserved lemons in the flavours with a shimmery steeliness in the finish.

Barraud Pouilly-Fuisse La Roche 2009 
Characteristics: Daniel et Marine Barraud 2009 La Roche Pouilly-Fuissé, Vin de Bourgogne | 13% | 100% Chardonnay | No usage of synthetic chemicals | 100% fostered and harvested by hand | Imported by The Wine Company | La Roche is named for Roche de Vergisson (or Rock of Vergisson) that defines Pouilly-Fuissé. It is an enormous limestone escarpment that faces La Roche de Soloutré and defines the steep limestone vineyards that drape its feet down to the village of Vergisson where the Barrauds have called their home since the 19th century.

From two plots of 35 year old vines, this Pouilly Fuissé is just humming. Tangy scents of creamy lemon peels, poached apples and pears carry on from a permeating nose to a penetrating palate echoing these in a chirping texture of dry extract, apple skin tannins and beautifully ripened flavors lingering fragrantly long onto the finish with a lasting sappiness that goes on for minutes as only great limestone driven Pouilly-Fuisse can do. A Who’s Who sort of exemplary Pouilly-Fuissé at its best.
