Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

($243) Pale color. Sexy, complex aromas of stone fruits, minerals, white flowers and barrel char. Suave on entry, then rich, fine-grained and round, with lovely energy to the peach and mineral flavors. Fat but not heavy; in fact, this boasts excellent grip. Very silky, enticing Batard with superb persistence. All from fruit on the Puligny side of the grand cru ("if it was from Chassagne, it would be heavier," noted Lardiere), who retained about 40% of the malic acidity.

Waxy nose - broad and lemony and rich. Very dry finish. So chewy you almost need a knife and fork for this. Wait a long time! Pretty good length.

Bright yellow, hinting at gold. Lower toned minerality. Flowers, honey, lemon on the nose. Lemon and apricot on the palate with incredible layering of flavor. Minute+ finish.

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.
