91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2014
(13.9% alcohol; from the Charles Heintz vineyard; partial malolactic fermentation): Good bright yellow. Very fresh aromas of pineapple and slate reminded me a bit of Chassagne-Montrachet Les Caillerets. On the palate, exotic tropical fruit flavors are grounded by a saline quality and enlivened by strong acidity. Skinnier than normal for this bottling but stony, fresh and Burgundian. DuMol's contract is for 40 tons of fruit, but Smith hand-selected just 14 owing to botrytis. This 2011 was filtered while the rest of the DuMol chardonnays were lightly fined but not filtered.
