Expert Reviews

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

Pale yellow.  Deeply pitched aromas of pineapple, crushed stone and spicy oak (Bernard Raveneau noted that this cuvee was aged in a bit more new oak than the rest).  Lovely creamy pineapple and marzipan flavors display full ripenes but are given grip and energy by excellent harmonious acidity.  The silkiest and deepest of these 2009s.  Finishes very long and tactile, with a distinctly tannic impression that leaves the mouth a bit dry.  This very rich, powerful wine will require patience.

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...
