94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound
"A soft touch of wood frames ripe yellow fruit aromas that include peach, apricot and mango as well as citrus nuances among which lemon and grapefruit are to be found. There is impressive complexity to the rich, full-bodied and powerful large-scaled flavors that brim with dry extract on the citrusy and bone dry finish. An impressive showing that should age beautifully well." June 2012

"An exotic style, boasting flavors of smoke, bacon fat, apple, peach and baking spices. Intense, with focus, a chalklike texture and savory length, even a hint of oyster shell. Best from 2013 through 2023." - August 2012
I'd rather being drinking this for the same price for a Peter Michael, Kister or Aubert Chardonnay. Lock in the best price for this rarity that is developing quite nicely in the bottle. Don't hesitate to enjoy this in the immediate. The pinnacle of Chardonnay!
Pair with a crab and lobster roulade.
