92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2011

(bottled four days before I tasted it):  Good pale yellow.  Very pure, laid-back aromas of citrus peel and crushed stone, with hints of flint and smoke.  Dense and ripe, with an impression of sucrosite buffered by penetrating citrus and grapefruit flavors and a firm spine of acids and minerals.  This very rich, gripping wine dusts the palate with lemon zest and crushed stone on the very long, perfumed finish.  A superb and complete 2009, and a stunningly good village wine.  There's almost no topsoil over the limestone here, notes Picq.  This may be even better than the 2008 version.

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...
