Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

The 2003 Chardonnay Chloe exhibits a greenish hue to its light straw color in addition to tropical fruit, orange blossom, lemon zest, litchi, honeysuckle, and white peach characteristics. Well-structured, ripe, and full, it can be enjoyed over the next 5-6 years.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90(+?)

($67) Pale yellow-gold. Subdued aromas of apricot, orange and nutty oak. Sweet, broad and ripe; shows less immediate verve than the Isobel but more ripeness and depth of flavor. And there's good firm acidity underneath. The back end is fine-grained, bright, complex and long.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 88

Rich and full-bodied, with layers of fig, melon and honeysuckle, with hints of caramel and peanut brittle, finishing with a long, persistent aftertaste that coats the palate. 730 cases made.

About This Producer


The 25-acre biodynamically farmed DuMOL Estate Vineyard is located on an undulating east-facing slope of one of Russian River Valley's most famous ridgelines. From this classic site, and in tandem with some of the coastal area's finest growers, DuMOL crafts wines that fully capture the aromatics, flavors, and textures that exemplify their vineyard sites and the varietal characteristics in the purest and most precise form.

Wine Varietal: Chardonnay


Arguably the best dry white wine grape out there, Chardonnay is grown all over the globe. In addition to being the backbone of fine white Burgundies, Chardonnay is also one of the three major grape varieties used in producing Champagne. Susceptible to a myriad of complications, Chardonnay berries are relatively small, thin-skinned, fragile, and oxidize easily. Chardonnay grapes can be sensitive to winemaking techniques and more difficult to handle from harvest to bottling than many other varieties. Some producers will use malolactic fermentation (where harsher malic acid is turned into softer lactic acid and carbon dioxide) to reduce crispness and acidity and add a creamy, buttery texture to wines. The "oaky" character of some Chardonnays comes from fermenting or aging which takes place in oak barrels. Once barrel-aged, Chardonnay may take on notes of vanilla or toast. While Chardonnay is produced worldwide, the best can be found in France, the United States, Argentina, Chile, Australia, Italy, New Zealand, and South Africa. Typical descriptors for Chardonnay include mineral, green apple, citrus, tropical fruits, vanilla, butter and smokiness.
