Evesham Wood Chardonnay Le Puits Sec

$63.58

Evesham Wood has been a revelation for us. Rarely do we encounter a  winery that has successfully flown under the radar of most consumers, that produces such truly exceptional wines. It wouldn’t be overstating the fact that this may be one of the most underrated wineries in the Willamette Valley. Founded by Russ Raney in 1986 after training with the legendary Henri Jayer in Vosne-Romanée, the estate started with 3.23 hectares of vineyards planted on the eastern side of the Eola-Amity Hills ridge. Known locally as “Spring Valley”, the area has one of the best microclimates in all of Oregon. After twenty years of making wine, Russ and his wife Mary began working closely with Erin Nuccio. Feeling the time was right, they sold the winery to Erin in 2010, who has maintained the same approach to winemaking.

This is how Erin describes the 2019 Le Puits Sec Chardonnay – “Once again our quarter acre of Chardonnay at the very top of Le Puits Sec only gave us a single barrel of wine in 2019. It was barrel fermented in neutral oak and completed full malo-lactic conversion. It was then held in barrel for 15 months with the first 6 of those on the lees. There’s a bit more flesh and fruit this year while still remaining fresh with great minerality.”
