Wine Spectator | Rating: 89Presents a scaled-down version of spicy, herb- and celery-laced citrus and green apple flavors, building fruit richness, body and length. Most compelling on the finish. Drink now. 394 cases made.Author: James Laube
Wine Advocate | Rating: 92The 2013 Chardonnay Heintz Vineyard has a similar light golden color, but with more of a greenish hue. Displaying more hazelnut, marmalade, and brioche notes, the wine tastes like a premier cru Meursault, with more smoky nuances. It is full-bodied, rich, concentrated and very Burgundian. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.Author: Robert Parker
Quality across the board is exceptionally high, with especially notable Pinot Noirs. There are no secrets to Williams Selyem's success: they seek low yield, fully ripened grapes from superb vineyard sources.
