    93pts Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate

    Robert Parker, Jr., Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Chardonnay is fermented in egg-shaped concrete tanks and 30% of the wine sees new French oak. There’s a toasted note of baked bread or almond that sets off the complex bouquet. Aromas later open to peach, apricot, exotic fruit, honeysuckle, vanilla and spice. This is a sophisticated and impeccable wine with the pedigree of an important, oak-aged Chardonnay from the New World. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020." Aug 2013

     "Color: Brilliant, shiny yellow gold with hints of white gold on the rim. On the nose: Explosion of pear, quince, vanilla, butter and granite, balanced with touches of white truffles, exotic fruits and Cajun nuts. On the palate: Fresh entrance evolving quickly on minerality, quinine, grapefruit andb lood orange, lingering on vanilla ice cream and crème brûlée."
