La Follette is a small Sonoma County winery focused on crafting small-lot Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays from some of the finest vineyards in the Sonoma Coast, Sonoma Mountain and Mendocino Ridge appellations. Launched in 2010, La Follette is a new winery from esteemed California winemaker Greg La Follette in partnership with owners Pete and Terri Kight. Uniquely gifted as both a winemaker and viticulturist, Greg La Follette is one of the country’s leading authorities on Pinot Noir. Frequently espousing age-old Burgundian practices not commonly used in this country, Greg has built his career crafting rich and elegant wines that speak of a distinct sense of place. Greg studied at UC Davis, gained valuable training at Beaulieu Vineyard as a research viticulturalist/enologist under wine master André Tchelistcheff, consulted at Kendall-Jackson where he provided guidance on the improvements in vine and wine quality and launched Flower’s successful Pinot Noir program as winemaker and general manager. Today, turning his focus to La Follette, Greg is able to practice his unique style of “on the edge” winemaking – taking risks he believes are necessary to make truly extraordinary wine. Read less

Bright yellow-gold. Ripe orchard and pit fruit faromas are lifted by zesty mineral and ginger nuances with notes of vanilla and mace in the background. Fleshy and expansive on entry then tighter in the mid-palate offering fresh pear and nectarine flavors and a touch of honey on the back. Closes sappy and long with lingering spice and orange zest notes. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

The 2010 Chardonnay Sangiacomo Vineyard is gorgeous. Sweet apricots succulent pears flowers honeysuckle and mint are some of the many nuances that are woven together in this highly expressive nuanced Chardonnay. The Sangiacomo finds its minerality on the mid-palate which propels the fruit through to the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016. - Antonio Galloni Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
