Expert Reviews

94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2011

(L0346UJ05700):  Pale gold.  Deep, pungent aromas of dried pear, toasted nuts and grain and white flowers, with a subtle citrus note in the background; pretty exotic stuff.  Broad and silky in texture, with slow-mounting minerality adding focus to its powerful, smoke-accented orchard fruit flavors.  Shows an energetic, spicy quality on the finish, which echoes the mineral, smoke and floral notes.  This Champagne is still very young but I suspect that it will be more a mid-term drinker than a long ager.

While the origins of the grape were disputed for many years, with some speculating that the grape came all the way from the Middle East, DNA researchers at the University of California-Davis proved in 1999 that Chardonnay actually developed...
