After an extensive search in 1972 to identify the most suitable Australian area for the production of premium varietal wines, Robert Mondavi singled out a small plot of land in the Margaret River region. At the time a cattle farm, Leeuwin Estate evolved under the direction of owners Denis and Tricia Horgan, with Mondavi acting as consultant and mentor. The Estate was thrust into the international spotlight when Decanter magazine awarded their highest recommendation to the 1980 Art Series Chardonnay. Now under the direction of two generations of the founding family, the Estate is recognized as one of Australia’s leading wine producers and wine tourism pioneers. Featured three times in the prestigious category of “International Winery of the Year” by U.S. Wine & Spirits magazine, Leeuwin Estate wines nconsistently rank alongside the world’s finest.

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!

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.

TA 7.1 g/l. 100% new French barrel fermentation. Understated fresh and juicy. Less toasty than the Prelude Vineyards 2010. Textural and very youthful. The quality is more implicit than explicit at this stage. 17.5/20 (RH) Jancis Robinson.

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.
