The palate delivers unheard-of richness, dominated by a cutting acidity. It requires at least 10 years of cellaring, rising to 30 years for great vintages like this!

Expert review

This is restrained and extremely tight while revealing precious little aromatically beyond hints of pure white flower, pear and spice. However, the rich, full and strikingly powerful flavors are even more imposingly-scaled than those of the Criots and possess superb depth of dry extract and huge length on the detailed, focused, beautifully balanced and penetrating finish that seems to go on without end. This is a potentially great Montrachet and I really admire the interplay of power and volume juxtaposed against an almost lilting mouth feel. *Don't Miss!

The Grape

Chardonnay

One of the most planted, versatile and popular white varieties in the world. As a stand alone grape, Chardonnay is not the most interesting, nor complex varietal out there...but in the hands of a great winemaker it can be turned into one of the world's greatest pleasures! From the best bubbles of Champagne, to the lean, unoaked and mineral expressions of Chablis and the opulent, oaked and complex whites of Burgundy, Chardonnay is responsible for making some of the greatest expressions of white wine on the planet.
