Wine Advocate | Rating: 96The 2013 Chardonnay Cuvee Indigene is an awesome wine. It exhibits white peach, nectarine, mango, candied citrus and a combination of both power and elegance with its marmalade notes and underlying minerality. This wine is fresh, full-throttle, super-rich and layered. What an exquisite wine to drink over the next decade.Author: Robert Parker
Wine Spectator | Rating: 90Though rich and full-bodied, with tiers of flavor, this remains raw and edgy in texture, so cellaring should be beneficial. The core of tropical fruit, green apple and citrus flavors is the focal point. Ends raw. Drink now through 2020. 345 cases made.Author: James Laube
