Wine Description

(1990 Vintage) "The Blanc des Millenaires is 100% Chardonnay and offers a beautiful, stately expression of this grape. It's very refined in texture and complex, revealing honey, coffee, citrus confit and ginger notes enmeshed in the supple, finely grained texture. It's firm, yet perfectly integrated with the other elements."-Wine Spectator

    (1995 Vintage) We have now tasted this 1995 in three consecutive years, and it continues to show as one of the best wines of the vintage. It has the broadness typical of many rsquo;95, but none of the heaviness. Instead, itrsquo;s surprisingly fresh, brisk, bold. Scents of leather and wood spices lend a masculine complexity to the finish, contrasting the vibrant acidity. Fairly priced for what is soon to be a 14-year-old wine, this is well worth stocking away in the cellar.
