92 Points | International Wine Cellar , February 2011

Gold-tinged yellow. Subtly complex aromas of yellow peach, orange, honey, gingery spices, white pepper and crushed stone. Rich, tactile and dry, showing more soil than easy fruit character in the mouth. A dusty mineral component and the firm acidity of the 2008 vintage give this wine a chewy, saline quality that should make it very flexible at the dinner table.

Spectacular!

This was just spectacular with grilled shrimp, just pink, on lightly sauteed sweet corn, onion and Jalapeno pepper. I don't think life gets much better than this! Three bottles left....

This was an outstanding Pouilly. Picked at just-right maturity for this vintage.
Maybe it is a 20 year bottle!

We had our second of these after two years in the cellar. Not much change - maybe a little bit weightier. Still delectable! Maybe it is a 20 year bottle, but if I start being unhealthy I'm going to drink it up!
As Advertised!

We have enjoyed one bottle of this and concluded the Tanzer review is right on. We think this will reward bottle age and plan to hold the remaining bottles for a few years. This is very nice Chardonnay!
Ho-hum, another oaky Chard

The usual brilliant topaz of an oaky Chard. Underneath, yep, an oaky Chard. OK, there are minerals here, and if you drank it beside a Kistler Dutton, you'd know which was not Californian. That said, I gave it up and switched to a Louis Michel Chablis: proof that it's not the grape; it's the oak. (Try the top cru of Henri Bourgeois Sancerre blanc -- not available in USA, so far as I know -- to see what I mean. The vignerons all claim it resolves in time. Well, a 6-y/o Pouilly-Fuissé should offer some better excuse for patience than 20% New Oak. To me, it tastes like 50%+).

About Burgundy

The finest red and white wines of Burgundy set the standard for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. At their best, Burgundy wines are the world's most aromatically complex, silky, and seductive wines, thanks to their ineffable combination of fruits, flowers, minerals, and earth, and their ability to project flavor authority without excess weight. But first-rate Burgundies are produced in limited quantities. Burgundy is a minefield for the...

Chardonnay

The best Chardonnays in the world continue to arrive from the region where the grape first emerged: the chalk, clay, and limestone vineyards of Burgundy and Chablis. 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...
