More Vintages and Sizes of Kongsgaard - Chardonnay The Judge:
International Wine Cellar
Author: Stephen Tanzer
Issue: Issue 126
($175) Slightly deeper yellow than the 2004. Wild aromas of bacon fat and game. Superconcentrated but quite dry, with flavors of apple pie dough, cinnamon butter and smoked meat. Very little primary fruit to be found. This is hugely rich but today I find it almost too dry, with the minerality it displayed in barrel a year ago decidedly in the deep background.

The Chardonnay of the vintage is the 2003 Chardonnay The Judge. At $175, it may be California's most expensive Chardonnay, but what a remarkable wine! Tightly-wound as well as super-concentrated, it represents the essence of a terroir and varietal character. Sadly, there are only 100 cases of this remarkable effort.
