International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 90

Slightly hazy color. Complex, soil-inflected aromas of roasted grain, iodine, peat, pear skin and spring flowers. Very rich and concentrated; dense and deep but spicy and focused. This has a supple, airy texture I associate with the best ripe-year white Burgundies. Quite concentrated and tactile. Finishes with palate-staining length.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 120

The 1997 Chardonnay Vine Hill Road Vineyard (from both Hyde and Dijon Burgundy clones) is a more restrained wine with noticeably higher acidity. It reveals suggestions of cold steel, wet stones, and that liquid minerality found in certain Chardonnays. Medium to full-bodied, with excellent depth, and more austerity and backwardness than its siblings, it will benefit from another year of cellaring, and keep for 6-7 years.

WineDoc Trust Rating: 98 Tasted On: 06/17/2013

Remarkably well preserved, pale gold with clearing at the edges. Initial nutty, toasted brioche and grain, cut straw, evolves to creamy citrus fruit, mixed with honeyed apricot, a hint of smoke, surrounding a mineral core. Medium to long finish. Superb balance.
