91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2010

($26; bottled in mid-May) Bright, pale yellow. Lemon oil, smoke and a whiff of stony reduction on the nose. The palate begins with almost a sweet impression, but there's also terrific energy and tension to the flavors of liquid rock and orange blossom. I love the combination of ripeness, sweetness of fruit and minerality here. Finishes with superb lift and length-in fact, this is every bit as long as the premier crus here in 2008. Terrific taut, ageworthy wine: Picq told me he bottled a lot of magnums of this juice.

Meyer Lemon & Clam Shells
05/20/2011
by Mike C.
Nose of vegetation, wet rock and white flowers riding on solid core of sea shells. In the mouth, this beauty is tart (major plus for my palate, might be off-putting for others) with all other elements in balance (sugar, fruit, alcohol). Bite into the pulp of a sweet Meyer lemon sprinkled with crushed clam shells, and you’d be close to the flavor profile. Really showcases the terroir, and thankfully not that of the local cooper.

Wine lovers who have come to think of Chardonnay as weighty and thick will find Chablis a revelation. When grown in the cool clay-and-chalk soils around the sleepy town of Chablis, at the northern reach of Burgundy, Chardonnay is transformed into one of the world's most cerebral and distinctive white wines. With its brisk...

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...
