International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 162

Hazy yellow color. Candied orange and pear on the pungent, intensely perfumed nose. Lush and creamy on entry, then tighter in the mid-palate, offering palate-staining citrus and pit fruit flavors with complicating notes of honeysuckle and chalky minerals. Finishes broad and chewy, with excellent thrust and lingering spiciness. The most exotic of this set of chardonnays today and the one that I would drink first.

The 2010 Chardonnay Belle Cote (1,950 cases) enjoys 10-12 months of barrel aging then rests in tank for a few months before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. A light gold color with a greenish hue is followed by stunning aromas of mango, pineapple, white peach and honeysuckle. This full-bodied, rich Chardonnay boasts terrific minerality as well as good acidity. Still somewhat reserved, but bursting with potential, this beauty can be drunk now and over the next 6-10 years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

There is much to admire in this complex mix of anise, fig, citrus, tangerine, hazelnut and melon flavors. The texture is what separates the 2010s, and here it is a bit raw and coarse. The intense finish shows a dash of smokiness. Needs time.
