Connoisseurs Guide 94
"Here is an exceptionally well-made Chardonnay that belies the notion that you cannot have it all. It is deep, very well-ripened and rife with rich fruit and oak, but it is also extraordinarily well- balanced and promises to get even better with age. It capably bridges the gulf between the "old" paradigm of ripeness and abundant oak and the new one of fashion that favors firmness and higher acidity instead, and it convincingly captures the best that each has to offer."

"The only white tasted, and a big, ripe and voluptuous effort, the 2010 Chardonnay is overflowing with notions of honeyed peaches, sauteed apples, brioche, vanilla custard and subtle mineral components on both the nose and palate. Fleshy, full-bodied and thrillingly textured, with a rich, almost creamy feel that somehow stays well-defined and pure, it is an undeniably sexy Chardonnay meant for drinking over the coming 3-4 years. Drink now-2017."
