The crème of the Chardonnays is the 2016 Chardonnay B. Thieriot Vineyard which comes from a site not far from the Summa Vineyard, far out on the Sonoma Coast. From vines planted in 1990, this tour de force tastes like a Grand Cru white Burgundy with its white, white fruit, white flowers, citrus blossom, and flinty, salty minerality. Deep, concentrated, yet chiseled and focused on the palate, it’s pure class and world-class. Give bottles a year or two and it will keep for 10-15 years.
Another standout, the 2016 Chardonnay B. Thieriot Vineyard is the most intense and phenolic of the four Rivers-Marie Chardonnays. The 2016 is going to need at least a few years to come into its own, as it is presently dense, powerful and quite structured. This year I saw fewer of the reductive notes that have marked the Thieriot in previous years. (AG) 93+
