TOP VALUE (Wine Spectator, May 31, 2022)

Bright berry, cherry and spice flavors are framed with sweet wood smoke in this supple red. Just a touch of firmness on the finish. Drink now. 20,000 cases made, 1,250 cases imported. — BS

Supple, silky and fat in its ripeness of fruit, this is slightly raisined in the aroma and touches on butterscotch sweetness in the flavor. While it sits heavy in the middle, the finish is long and fragrant. Give this time to meld.

The fig and lemon flavors are accented by spice and toast notes in this open yet crisp white. Lingers, with the emphasis on the acidity for now.

A discreet hint of wood only emerges after 30 minutes or so of air along with ripe and somewhat somber wild dark berry fruit aromas that display hints of spice and warm earth. There is good volume but also solid detail to the medium-bodied flavors that possess a suave and supple mouth feel before culminating in a delicious, focused and attractively intense finish. This is not an especially elegant Chambolle villages but there is good complexity and persistence.

A smoky, nutty, crowd-pleasing chardonnay, this is warm and creamy with some greenness to the flavors. The soft structure makes it an easy aperitif.
Score: 89 | November 1, 2012 | Wine Enthusiast
This is finely structured, with its ripe tannins forming a solid base for the dense red fruit and spicy wood flavors. It’s soli and chunky, showing its youth through the rich texture. Age for 3–4 years.
