Nice toast! Fresh and juicy apple and pear notes. - WS Grand Tour 2011
Tasted alongside a 1er cru Chassagne this wine sings, rich, but not overpowering, great combination of fruit and oak, maybe a little more acidity would be be perfect. However this is a great bottle of wine
Buttery nose. Medium length. Highly intense aroma, albeit not the complexity of the 2001. Great Chardy!
Four and a half glasses
One half glass
Notes of tomato chutney (Ketchup), ripe meaty summer berries.
External Reviews for Leeuwin Estate Chardonnay Margaret River Art Series
The 2010 Art Series Chardonnay is redolent of warm peaches toasted almonds and apple tart with hints of cedar and wet pebbles. Medium to full-bodied and very concentrated with layers of stone fruit toast and nut flavors it has a lively backbone of acidity satiny texture and long finish. Approachable now it will drink to 2019+. 95+ - Lisa Perrotti-Brown Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
Aromatically tight but expansive and expressive in the mouth pouring out its pear green guava and fig flavors in a generous stream with glints of spice. Comes together smoothly on a deftly balanced frame to let the finish sail on and on. Drink now through 2030. From Australia.

Light, bright yellow. Fresh citrus and orchard fruit aromas are complicated by white flowers, iodine, toasty lees and butter. Smoky, penetrating orange and pear flavors are complemented by deeper suggestions of honey and sweet butter, with a firm m... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Still pale quartz-green; the finesse of Art Series Chardonnay when it is young is every bit as enjoyable as is the complexity it gains after six or seven years in bottle (under screwcap), its future still assured. We know that good bottles from the m... James Halliday. A Chardonnay wine from Western Australia in Australia. 2008 Leeuwin Estate Chardonnay Art Series 750ml
2007 Margaret River Art Series Chardonnay The platinum color and fine pear-like scent show the restraint in this chardonnay. Oak dominates the flavors for now with cinnamon and caramel notes that last in the finish. But the core of the wine-juicy pear nectarine and loquat-has a freshness that will turn that oak toward minerality with bottle age. Hints of it are already there. Wine & Spirits.
One of Australia's benchmark Chardonnays continues its roll, offering up opulent scents of vanilla, peach and mango. Tropical fruit and toasty oak flavors are easily carried by a lush, full-bodied delivery system that seems to unfold kaleidoscopicall... Wine Enthusiast.
