Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

DuMol's 2010 Chardonnay Clare Hyde Vineyard is exceptionally beautiful. Bright floral notes meld into citrus and crushed rocks in the Clare. This is the most focused and vibrant of the DuMol 2010 Chardonnays, largely because the malolactic fermentation was only half completed. There is a sense of energy and drive in the Clare that is compelling. I can't wait to see how it ages. I find the energetic, resonant style striking. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

(all Hyde Vineyard fruit; 50% new oak): Bright yellow-gold. Pungent, intense aromas of honeyed pear, nectarine, Meyer lemon, iodine and agave, with a strong mineral overlay. On the palate, minerally and extremely deep, offering strikingly concentrated citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a smoky undercurrent. Finishes with outstanding thrust, focus and length, leaving iodine and pear notes behind.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 88

Showcases the flinty green apple and citrus flavors of Carneros. Chablis-like, offering a flinty austerity, registering as complete, focused and persistent.

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.
