International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 114

($65) Rich yellow color. Rather full-blown, expressive aromas of peach, apricot, minerals, licorice and mint. Fat with peachy fruit and complicated by notes of white flowers and vanillin oak. A sweet, pliant fruit bomb with less of the mineral and sulfidey character shown by some of the other Kistler 2001s. And yet this is still rather unevolved; a few years in bottle should bring even more complexity. Very long on the aftertaste.

The 2001 Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard is a tightly-knit offering. Light gold-colored with considerable glycerin and power, it exhibits a liquid minerality, and a big, rich, textured style with huge concentration. Most of the wine’s character is at the back of the palate. This offering reminds me of a Batard-Montrachet from the likes of Louis Latour. With extraordinary length, richness, precision, and purity, this sensational Chardonnay will drink well for 6-8 years. Tel. (707) 823-5603; Fax (707) 823-6709

Slightly cloudy light to medium gold colored wine. A taut nose of lemon, oak, light vanilla spice, and flint. On the palate, the wine shows slightly excessive heat and elevated "chalky" acidity. Good length on the finish, this wine needs time to unwind.
