94 points "Very creamy, refined Chardonnay, this is full of chalky, minerally character. Full-bodied, with wonderful harmony, offering vanilla beans, pear tart and toasted oak character. Silky finish, a caressing wine. Drink now through 2010." Best 2002-2010

95 points "By Stephen Tanzer Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Sep/Oct 10 ($121) Pale bright yellow Knockout high-pitched nose seduces with scents of violet, lavender, lemon, crushed stone, mint, cinnamon and ginger; this could be bottled as perfume. Then wonderfully rich, pure and deep but youthfully tight, with compelling aromatic lift to the citrus, spice and mineral flavors. Really explosively rich but somehow weightless. Finishes with superb length and aromatic class. I'd lay this down for five to seven years. In recent years, this has been a consistently spectacular grand cru-and a relative value. 95(+?) points" Best 2014-
