 Tasted by deanmillson on 12/11/2012 & rated 94 points: Purchased from the cellar door as a museum release.

Golden straw in colour. A honeyed citrus nose, with some complex notes of banana, even green tea. The palate is buttery, with citrus and melon. Age has rounded and softened things, but it's still balanced with a tiny acid backbone. Divine. (1093 views)
 Tasted by Eckie on 9/26/2008 & rated 89 points: This wine is directly at opening everything one seeks in a good Burgundy white; elegance, refinement and power in one glass. It is the perfect house chardonnay. I have never come across someone who didn't like it. Try it and find out! One last point: do not try to save some for the next day: all the magic and refinement will be gone. Then again, it's a problem that will rarely happen! (1384 views)
 Tasted by OregonWineGeeks on 6/11/2008 & rated 93 points: A mature Chardonnay, a light straw color. The nose is melon, sweet citrus orange. The taste is sweet fruit and mineral water up front into a clean acidic nutty finsih. Quite good, it was a 93 for me and Iíll enjoy the other bottles in the cellar (1371 views)
 Tasted by GEMon on 3/8/2008 & rated 92 points: Scents of honeydew melons. Honeydew (and perhaps peach) on the palate with slight lemony acidity on the finish. (1612 views)
 Tasted by wombat on 9/10/2007: 80% oaked. Very Good-Excellent. (1571 views)
