Winemaker's Notes

The La Source bottling comes from Pommard clone vines planted along a deep shelf of ancient volcanic rock which forms an upside-down cross in the vineyard. The topsoil in this part of the vineyard, called Nekia is naturally iron-rich and relatively shallow, between two to five feet. Given the terroir, La Source Chardonnay and La Source Pinot Noir display incredible minerality and beautiful intensity.

Critical Acclaim

"This is a stunning debut from a venture that draws fruit from California and Oregon. The principle Oregon source is Seven Springs, placed here in the capable hands of consulting winemaker Dominique Lafon. He brings a Burgundian perspective, and transformed the savory lees character of the wine into the irresistable scent of brioche. It's rich yet high toned and energetic, the golden apple flavors sensuous and full."
94 Points

"Spicy, toasty, minerally and tight, with lime-accented pear and bay leaf character, wrapped in a sleek package that shoots the flavors into a long finish, weaving in hints of crushed rock as the finish remains vivid. Best from 2011 through 2017. 129 cases made"
