Husband and wife team Ted and Heidi Lemon are behind this family run winery, established in 1993. Ted began his career in Burgundy and has worked for some of the region's top estates including Domaine Guy Roulot in Meursault where he was winemaker and vineyard manager, the first American to ever hold such a position in Burgundy! Heidi has similarly worked for some of California's top producers including Robert Long Vineyards and Stag's Leap Wine Cellars. Ted and Heidi's mission with Littorai was to find the best spot to grow Pinot Noir and Chardonnay along the littoral (coastal) zones of the U.S.A. All the vineyards have been farmed biodynamically since 2001 and there is minimal intervention in the winemaking. Tasting Notes: Cerise shows lovely precision in the aromas in 2014: cinnamon stick, red berries and gravelly, mineral notes. It has a lovely richness and firm tannins dominate the very long finish. The 2014 Cerise is drinking well now but will also benefit from time in the bottle to fully reveal itself.
