International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 120

($60) Good medium yellow; slightly hazy. Musky aromas of lemon peel, iodine, minerals and charred oak. Velvety-rich and sweet on the palate, but with a light touch. A seamless chardonnay that really dances on the palate, even if it doesn't offer quite the texture or intensity of the best 2002 chardonnays at this address. Finishes tight and youthfully dry, with slightly edgy acidity. This really calls for a couple years of cellaring.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 150

Readers looking for more Meursault-like, roasted hazelnut, smokiness, tropical fruit and a leesy note to its medium to full-bodied, chunky, richly fruity style should check out the 2002 Chardonnay Dutton Ranch. An elegant example of this cuvee, but still typically California, it will drink well for 3-4 years.

The seemingly ubiquitous Dutton Ranch has been the source of some fine Kistler Chardonnays over the years. Kistler?s grapes come from 33 year old vines. Light gold colored wine with clean and bright aromas of pear, light spice, and new wood. Good but slightly innocuous California Chardonnay. Much better in the mouth than the nose with attractive but not excessive viscosity and excellent length.
