Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

($29) Light yellow. Smoky pear and white peach scents are complemented by bright minerals and lemon zest. Fleshy but also firm, with juicy orchard fruit flavors and bitter lemon zest on the finish. This is a high-altitude site near the villages of Pouilly and Fuisse, with full southern exposure, according to Barraud.

The power of this favorable terroir is translated into wines of impeccable pedigree and comportment that will please in the present and reward in the future.

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.
