Cellar/Tasting Notes "Honey, tangerine and mint are some of the many notes that inform the 2012 Meursault. Rich and exotic in the glass, the 2012 is deep, explosive and layered to the core. I am not sure how the 2012 will age, but it is a drop-dead beauty today and should deliver considerable pleasure for at least a..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "A softly oaky nose frames a pretty and fresh nose of white peach, spiced pear and discreet citrus notes that precede the rich and notably generous medium-bodied flavors that possess a round mouth feel where the energy picks up considerably on the linear and ever-so-mildly austere finish. A..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "As has been the case for a number of years, Rudd’s Sauvignon Blanc in 2012 is a stunning effort. Although it does not say so on the label, I believe a lot of the fruit for this cuvee comes from a vineyard on Mt. Veeder. It is an 891-case blend of 83% Sauvignon Blanc, 9% Semillon and 8% Sauvignon..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "Vibrant, expressive, focused and concentrated, dancing lightly with an array of toast? and mineralaccented peach, pear, lime and orange blossom flavors, lingering enticingly against refined acidity."
Cellar/Tasting Notes "Marked by oak spice, this reveals toast, peach, apple and lemon underneath. Rich, open and balanced on the bright side, with a long finish. Improved with a few hours aeration."
Cellar/Tasting Notes "An exceptionally elegant nose of lemon zest, white flower, spiced pear and plenty of stone influence complements well the equally mineral-infused, intense and beautifully welldetailed flavors that possess that wonderful sense of underlying tension. I particularly like the long, dry and linear..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "A nice contrast to the Macherelles, the 2010 Chassagne-Montrachet Maltroye is quite a bit brighter and more taut than its Chassagne sibling. There is an underlying salinity that gives the Maltroye its energy and focus. Floral notes add lift on the crystalline, articulate finish. This is a..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "This offers a big step up in aromatic elegance with its stone, rose petal and lemon and orange peel scents that dissolve seamlessly into racy and wonderfully energetic flavors that possess excellent depth and length. The mid-palate seems directly extracted from liquid stone as 2010 is a vintage..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "A very subtle hint of oak sets off notes of spice, citrus peel, pear, acacia and tidal pool aromas. There is excellent size and weight to the impressively intense, rich and full-bodied mineral-infused flavors that possess fine detail on the almost painfully intense, tangy and lemony finish. This..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "Strong sulfur renders the nose almost unreadable and about all that can be discerned is that the underlying fruit appears ripe. There is good volume to the rich, mouth coating and delicious medium weight flavors that offer outstanding intensity along with excellent length. If this can add depth in..
