91 Points Tyson Stelzer
chardonnay clearly in the lead, speaking in articulate notes of lemon and pear, with the complexity of pinot’s red apple, and mature cellar notes of honey, cinnamon and toasted brioche. A gentle, tangy acid line keeps things lively. The dosage of 10g/ L could be lighter, leaving a sweet, candied suggestion to the finish. A crowd-pleasing blend, built on quality fruit. One bottle tasted was tired and developed, with bruised apple notes. The 2008 base vintage heightens its red berry presence, acid focus and chalk mineral mouthfeel.
