"Lively and vivacious, aromas suggest jasmine tea, lime, green pear and wet cement minerality. The palate blends the welcoming flavors of orange blossoms with cut-grass herbaciousness and chalky minerals."
"Aromas and flavors of baked peach, lemon chiffon, grass, and rice with a supple, tangy, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, engaging, medium-length green apple skin, limestone, and roasted chestnut finish with no oak."
"96+ points- Wine Advocate. The 2012 Haut-Brion Blanc has an entrancing bouquet of honeysuckle, fresh pear and greengage that is beautifully defined and seamlessly enmeshed with the oak. The palate is well balanced with just a patina of new oak, smooth and harmonious, fine mineralit? here with a spicy finish that leaves the tongue tingling. This is very well crafted and it will just get better and better."
"91-93 Rating! Wine Advocate. Has a lively, showy bouquet with lime cordial and freshly squeezed grapefruit scents that are neatly entwined with the new oak. The palate is fresh and crisp on the entry, tropical tones of nectarine, clementine and peach rending this almost drinkable now. It is well balanced and displays fine length, a white Pessac that should give great pleasure over the next 12-15 years."
"This golden wine is made from 100% chardonnay grapes picked from all over the burgundy area. It has a pear and apple aroma along with subtle citrus and almond. Fermented in stainless steel so it's a little crisper than whites fermented in wood. Nice match to fish, white meat, and cheese."
"90-92 Wine Advocate The 2012 unravels to reveal engaging, Puligny-inspired, stony scents, intermingled with lime and grapefruit. The palate is well-balanced with a touch of walnut and spice on the entry. It builds impressively toward the finish, maintaining fine acidity and delivering a satisfying, nutty finish. This is very fine."
"94 Points- Wine Enthusiast. The great flavor intensity comes from the sunny side of Vaud?sir. The wine is rich, yet crisp and packed with lemon and apple fruits, a touch of spice and a steely, young aftertaste. It needs to age, so drink this from 2018."
"Its deep, rich, honeyed mineral-scented nose leads to a broad, fat, fleshy personality. Dense, velvety-textured, and prolonged, its personality coats the palate with waves of pulp-laden pears and apples"
"Chassagne-Montrachet is an appellation consisting of 350 ha (865 acres) of clayish limestone located south of C\ufffdte de Beaune. Most wine produced in the village is white wine from the Chardonnay grape."
"One of the best Chardonnays in Greece, this wine is partially matured in French oak barriques and then again in the bottle. It is pale gold in color with aromas of pears, apricots and nuts."
