Professional Reviews For This Wine


Burghound | Rating: 96

This is restrained and extremely tight while revealing precious little aromatically beyond hints of pure white flower, pear and spice. However, the rich, full and strikingly powerful flavors are even more imposingly-scaled than those of the Criots and possess superb depth of dry extract and huge length on the detailed, focused, beautifully balanced and penetrating finish that seems to go on without end. This is a potentially great Montrachet and I really admire the interplay of power and volume juxtaposed against an almost lilting mouth feel.

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.
