Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 94+

The 2007 Chardonnay Clare (from an old Wente clone planted in the Hyde Vineyard) is the most limited single vineyard Chardonnay (400 cases produced). This backward offering displays a liqueur of rocks intermixed with lemon and orange blossom notes, an intense, full-bodied mouthfeel, a green-ish hue to its color, broad, expansive body, and superb purity as well as texture. Enjoy this beauty over the next decade or more.

($60; all from Hyde Vineyard) Greenish gold. Highly nuanced nose combines citrus fruits, fresh herbs, iodine and candied ginger, with a strong mineral undertone. Juicy, dense and chewy, but vibrant for all its size and power. Offers a captivating balance of deep fruit, smoky minerals and spices. This very rich, slightly saline wine really saturates the palate with flavor and finishes with noteworthy grip and a resonating note of iodine.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

Elegant and refined, fresh, rich, intense and vibrant, with a tight, complex core of citrus-laced green apple, pineapple, melon and honeysuckle, ending with a kiss of butterscotch.

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.
