The Wines of the West Sonoma Coast Vintners

Jeb Dunnuck

99 points. The 2018 Chardonnay B.A. Thieriot comes from a great vineyard located far out on the Sonoma Coast and was aged 14 months in 25-40% new French oak. It offers a more marine-influenced bouquet, with lots of salty minerality as well as notes of sliced green apple, white peach, toasted almonds, and toasted bread. Made in a more steely, racy style, it still has gorgeous concentration, flawless balance, and a great finish. This is a serious Chardonnay. Give bottles another year or two, and it’s going to evolve for a decade.”

“Nine years ago, when they were 22 years old, three childhood friends from the town Occidental in Sonoma County, California, decided to produce wine. Today, their business is booming, while the wait list for their vintages grows.”
