Jolie-Laide 2020 Clairette Blanche

Martin Ranch, Santa Barbara. Lean but balanced in textural weight, slight wax, and lanolin, lemon curd, white nectarine, persimmon, and spice but a ginger bite.

Another rare creature here in California raised in the Chamise Series (sandy loam) soils in the bucolic and biodynamic Martian Ranch in Los Alamos. Typically grown in the South of France where it is oft used as a blender in most Chateauneuf whites to bring acidity to the sometimes fatter varieties but can scarcely be found in some of the more iconic monovarietal cuveés of top houses like Chateau Prefert et al. Clairette – as it’s often called, can make everything from sparkling, light and crispy or left to hang longer for a richer and more complex style of wine. As you would likely expect, we chose to pick on the earlier side to preserve acidity and focus on coaxing more of the citrus and white flower side of the variety. Whole-cluster pressed, settled then racked to a combination of stainless steel and neutral barrique for fermentation and moved to all neutral barrique to complete malo during its 6-month elevage. Winery Notes

We continue to adorn our bottles with the art that surrounds and inspires us. Because our wines are a celebration of the year and seasons in which they were made, always different and unique, no two bottlings are ever the same. We honor each distinctive vintage with new artwork; sometimes our own, our friends or collaborations with artists across oceans. In this current climate, it is crucially important to remind ourselves of the utter beauty and joy mother nature surrounds us in. This year we are thrilled to be able to collaborate with and feature the work of renowned abstract artist Claire Desjardins.
