($75) Green-gold. Finely etched citrus and green apple aromas are impressively pure and incisive. Brisk lemongrass and lime flavors are complicated by dusty minerals and bitter pear skin. The most backward of this set right now, and a bit tough to assess. The finish repeats the citrus and mineral notes and lingers impressively. No way I'd touch this one any time soon.

The 2006 Chardonnay Durell Vineyard is dominated by crushed rock and a liquid minerality component, it also possesses notes of lemon oil, brioche, white currants, white peaches, and a lemon custard-like character. Full-bodied with beautiful subtlety, zesty acidity, and a long finish.

Crisp with loads of minerality. With the golden color one would thing that the oak would show stronger but not the case. Needs a few more years of cellaring.

Thought this might have lost some zing but it is drinking really nice right now. Citrus and ripe peaches. Very nice chard.

Am I missing something? This bottle was flabby with more than a hint of tarry, scorched earth on the finish. Not very delightful, and not up to the quality of the 2004 vintage of this cuvee I consumed earlier this year. This bottle was numbered approx. 10,200 out of 21,000. There's a reason Kistler numbers his bottles - it's to keep track of the bad lots.
