Wine Advocate | Rating: 99The 2015 Chardonnay Cuvee Indigene is profoundly scented of honeyed apricots, pear tart, marzipan and brioche with hints of butterscotch, praline and baker's yeast. The fine, fresh, medium-bodied palate has beautiful elegance and depth, with a minerally core and a citrus lift on the very long, creamy finish. Stunning. 545 cases were made.Drink Dates: 2017 - 2031Author: Lisa Perrotti-BrownIssue: 233
Wine Spectator | Rating: 90Young and pithy, this white is backward and tannic, yet the core flavors are on point for a promising future, with citrus green apple and melon flavors that are raw and edgy. Give it some time. Best from 2019 through 2024. 545 cases made.Drink Dates: 2019-2024Author: James LaubeIssue: Web Only - 2018
Vinous | Rating: 94The 2015 Chardonnay Cuvée Indigène is wonderfully lifted and nuanced, with striking interplay of floral notes, creamy stone fruit and mint. Like all of these wines, the Cuvée Indigène is fresh, vibrant and nuanced, but there is plenty of power and depth underpinning the fruit.Drink Dates: 2020 - 2027Author: Antonio GalloniIssue: Jul 2018
