International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 108

($70; bottled in August of 2002) Attractive pale yellow color. Sappy, pure, highly aromatic fruit aromas of orange peel, peach and lemon cream, complicated by notes of mirabelle and minerals; not particularly oaky despite the fact that it was aged in all new barrels. Very ripe and rich but juicy, with sharply delineated flavors of citrus fruits, orange peel, honey, spices and flowers. Showing wonderfully primary flavors and great spicy persistence. While numerous 2000 chardonnays will never be better than they are today, this wine is still youthfully undeveloped and should go through a graceful evolution in bottle over the next four to six years. Finishes with excellent grip.

The 2000 Chardonnay is evolving quickly for an offering from this estate. While a top vintage can easily hold up to a decade of cellaring, the 2000 is best consumed over the next two years. Full-bodied, with a striking minerality in addition to a concoction of orange citrus oil flavors, this medium to full-bodied Chardonnay possesses crisp acidity, a hint of roasted nuts, and a long finish. I tasted through a half dozen bottles I purchased, and each appeared to be slightly more evolved than the previous, a complete contrast to how the 1997 and 1999 have matured.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Deliciously ripe, rich and intense, deeply concentrated, with layers of ripe fig, apricot, pear, hazelnut and citrus. Long, complex aftertaste. This is a notably young, vibrant wine that will benefit from short-term cellaring.

After Marcassin, Kongsgaard may very well be the best Chardonnay made in California. The 2000 has a more advanced/darker color than past vintages. Unlike in past vintages, this wine is drinkable now. Good viscosity, excellent acidity, and powerful flavors of honeyed apples and spice. A very fine Chardonnay but this is a far weaker effort than past vintages.
