($70; bottled in August of 2002) Attractive pale yellow color. Sappy, pure, highly aromatic fruit aromas of orange peel, peach and lemon cream, complicated by notes of mirabelle and minerals; not particularly oaky despite the fact that it was aged in all new barrels. Very ripe and rich but juicy, with sharply delineated flavors of citrus fruits, orange peel, honey, spices and flowers. Showing wonderfully primary flavors and great spicy persistence. While numerous 2000 chardonnays will never be better than they are today, this wine is still youthfully undeveloped and should go through a graceful evolution in bottle over the next four to six years. Finishes with excellent grip.Author: Stephen Tanzer
