  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    (13.8% alcohol; just 49 cases made): Bright medium yellow. High-pitched aromas of lemon, lime blossom, dusty herbs and vanillin oak, along with a steely quality that suggests Chablis. Tightly wound and sharply delineated, with its lemon and lavender flavors kept under wraps today by stony minerality. Offers excellent intensity without weight. Not a fruity style but finishes with lovely perfume and cut, not to mention sneaky persistence.

  • From the Latin for "coasts," the Littorai name is a reminder that wine, "this noblest agricultural product, arises from the weave of place (vineyard), time (vintage), and man." This recognition, combined with Ted Lemon's education and training in winemaking in France, result in highly sought-after California Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Lemon's winemaking philosophy is influenced heavily by his time at the Universite de Bourgogne, where he earned a degree in Enology, as well as his apprenticeships at estates such as Domaine Dujac, Roumier, and Bruno Clair. With his wife Heidi, Lemon has produced wines that honestly express exceptional sites on the Sonoma Coast, Russian River, and Anderson Valley since 1993.
