Greg La Follette is one of California's most accomplished winemakers. He made wine for some of the big names, such as BV and Flowers, before starting his own project, La Follette. With its portfolio of small lot Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, La Follette stands out among its peers.
The 2017 La Follette Los Primeros Chardonnay is sourced from vineyards in two prime regions of California for Chardonnay, It is good example of a cool-climate, North Coast Chardonnay. It has a steely, vibrant style, superb acidity, and a great finish. Flavors of white peach, ripe apple, honeydew melon, quince, Meyer lemon, and savory spices abound then refreshing minerality comes to the fore in the late-palate. Pair with brioled salmon or tuna or a roast chicken.
