94-97 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2014

(I tasted two separate components of this wine and then an approximation of the final blend):  From Chevalier du Bas, just at the end of its malo:  Bright yellow.  Pineapple on the nose.  Plush and thick yet racy and penetrating too, with noteworthy sweetness to the mirabelle and apricot flavors.  Finishes with superb building length.  From Chevalier du Haut:  Paler bright yellow.  Higher-pitched aromas of lemon drop and crushed stone.  Racy, minerally, perfumed and light on its feet.  The iodine and calcaire notes give the mid-palate a distinct tautness in the early going.  Totally different from the Chevalier du Bas.  The combination:  Superb purity of apricot, lemon drop and iodine on the nose.  Suave, silky and highly concentrated, with dense fruit flavors given definition by the wine's mineral finesse.  Delivers great thickness without undue weight.  The building, gripping finish saturates the palate.  Potentially great.

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...
