International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 108

($60) Rather exotic aromas of ripe peach and apricot, Bartlett pear, rose petal, lichee, white pepper and minerals; a bit reminiscent of Alsace gewurztraminer. Sweet, thick, almost oily, with deep, thoroughly ripe fruit flavors of peach and apricot. Superconcentrated for this bottling, but as large-scaled as it is, it still retains a degree of elegance. Very long on the finish. A rather Meursault-like wine that may well go in a petrolly direction as it ages in bottle.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 142

The 2001 Chardonnay Belle Cote exhibits exotic tropical fruit notes, a layered, opulent texture, medium to full body, less minerality than La Carriere, beautiful layers of fruit, and a stunning finish. This brilliant effort should drink well for 5-7 years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Rich, exotic smoky oak, fresh bread dough and smoked grain aromas surround a plush core of ripe pear, fig and earthy citrus flavors that turn creamy and buttery on a long, lingering finish. Shows a trace of heat, but is enormously complex and sophisticated. 2,365 cases made.
