International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 99

($200) Rather deep copper color. Aromas of brown butter, toffee and walnut call to mind a dry oloroso sherry. Then large-scaled, rich, smooth and mouthfilling, with impressive concentration and a powerful impression of solidity. Shockingly fresh in the mouth following the mature aromas. In fact, this wine seemed to grow more vibrant as it opened in the glass. Finishes very rich and very long. This superrich vintage produced chardonnay with a tendency toward heaviness, but this wine is undeniably impressive. (Wilson-Daniels, St. Helena, CA)

Brilliant stuff. Vinous, with a patina of nutty maturity offset by a citrus- and honeysuckle-tinged freshness, all embraced by a taut, silky structure. The best is the finish, a kaleidoscope of biscuit, fig and walnut that goes on and on.

Much more developed than last bottle 2 yrs ago.Mid gold colour.Still high acid dominating fruit ,big mouth-filling style,perhaps better with food.

Stunningly rich and decadent. The bubbles are subtle at this point. Drank over the course of two hours through dinner and couldn't get enough of it.

Stunning! A deep honeyed color with tiny tiny bubbles. At first look, it appeared more like a still wine, but on the palate there was a ton of life. Flowers and honey is about what the nose and palate reminded me of with just enough bubbles to keep things exciting. What an amazing wine.
