92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2012

(bottled in January of 2012):  Very ripe aromas of orange, vanilla and flowers.  Juicy and minerally but backward; denser than the Mont-de-Milieu but less showy today.  Tight and gripping grand cru with lovely mineral energy and a note of orange oil giving a tactile quality to the brisk, mounting finish.  Built to age:  I'd start drinking this in five years.  (A retaste of the 2010 Clos Cuvee Authentique, which I rated 91-94 last year and which will not be bottled until late summer, showed aromas of mirabelle and pina colada; a silky, glyceral texture leavened by strong acidity; and a powerful, slightly sweet back end lifted by spicy high tones. On this latest tasting, I rated the wine 91-93.)

Crisp, but also a bit sour on the front. Gets better as it opens, still average. Green apple, a little cream. Not great.

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...
