Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 193

The 2008 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard possesses crisp, steely, Chablis-like characteristics of white citrus, steely acids, medium to full-bodied flavors and lots of purity. It is impossible to find any hint of oak in this wine even though 25% new French oak was utilized. Drink this northern Burgundy-styled Chardonnay over the next 3-4 years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

On the tart, green side, this Chablis-like version shows spicy pippin apple, citrus and honeydew melon notes that are clean, pure and refreshing.

Very nice...steely and vibrant but the midpalate lacks weight. finish is a bit short. Definitely a change in style for this producer...no malo on this chard..excellent drink but I prefer the Durell

Aromas: as with the 2007, very clear except in the core. Spice, meyer lemon, graphite, flint and pineapple Palate: rich, focused, nice acidity, stone fruits, apricot and peach Impression: firm and focused, good weight, even on day three at ambient temperature.
