Durch die Eiche bestechen feine Vanillearomen mit einem Hauch von Muskat. Am Gaumen angenehm fruchtige und weiche Tannine, gefolgt von frischer Säure und einem lang anhaltenden Abgang.

90 Points - Wine Spectator "Muscular, with broad cocoa and plum sauce notes leading the way for an ample core of currant confiture and licorice. The rock-solid finish will need some cellaring to stretch out. Best from 2009 through 2011. 10,000 cases imported."
Alluring toast aroma, with elegant pear tartine, honey and fig notes and a full, juicy finish. Nicely done. Drink now.
This round, fresh and stylish Chardonnay from the Casablanca Valley is a step up from the middling 2000 version. The bouquet yields ample pear, almond and coconut aromas, while the palate is loaded with pear fruit and a hint of oak-driven smoke. Classy and concise, and better made than almost every other similarly priced Chardonnay.
