Our 2014 vintage of La Source Chardonnay continues the great tradition of elegance and richness we've come to expect from this site. Sourced from the old-vine Dijon clones in the lower half of the vineyard, La Source Chardonnay speaks of our volcanic soils and the sunny growing season of 2014 showing our estate's prototypical balance of opulence and vibrancy. The 2014 La Source Chardonnay was gently pressed into French oak barrels for spontaneous and indigenous fermentation. The wine was raised sur lie in Damy cooperage, roughly 75% of which was new, for 10 months before being racked to tank. After a light fining, the wine was bottled without filtering.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Chardonnay Seven Springs Vineyard la Source, 20% matured in Stockinger 500-liter puncheons for 11 months, has a far superior bouquet compared to the Estate Chardonnay - much better delineation and mineralité, greater complexity and more Chablis-like. The palate is fresh and crisp with a keen line of acidity, a touch of lemongrass here with a vibrant finish that lingers in the mouth. This "wired" Chardonnay comes recommended.
