N°33 Chardonnay Reviews

Score: 97 | October 27, 2022 | The Wine Independent

The 2020 Chardonnay No 33 bursts with ripe juicy pears, allspice, honey-drizzled peaches, and grapefruit oil notes, plus a suggestion of honeycomb. The medium to full-bodied palate shimmers with energy and tension, supported by a satiny texture and delivering vibrant citrus and stone fruit layers, finishing long and spicy.

The 2014 Chardonnay No. 33 has pineapple, green mango and yuzu zest notes with suggestions of toasted almonds, croissant and orange blossoms. Medium-bodied with great finesse and a gorgeous satiny texture, it delivers fantastic flavor intensity with plenty of freshness and minerally persistence.

The 2013 Chardonnay No. 33 from Russian River shows a light-straw color with a greenish hue, always a good sign. A beautiful nose of caramelized citrus, honeysuckle and orange rind are all present in this full-bodied, beautifully crafted Chardonnay that shows virtually no evidence of any new oak. It is a beauty. Full-bodied, fresh, and pure, it is best drunk over the next 5-6 years.

Rich and heady on the nose in petrol and sublime vanilla crème brûlée, the palate is intriguingly more restrained, offering honey and pear balanced by persistent minerality that finds its voice most forcefully on the lean, refreshing finish. —V.B.

Elaborate and rich, this wine offers orange, nectarine, honey, vanilla, cream and butterscotch flavors, brightened by zesty acidity.
