This is a large-scaled wine, but with flamboyant marmalade, white currant, honeysuckle, and tropical fruit notes, less minerality than La Carriere, but beautiful acidity and a stony, steely personality not dissimilar to a grand cru in Burgundy such as Corton-Charlemagne. (RP)
Good bright, pale yellow. Subdued but pure aromas of lemon drop, grapefruit, pineapple and hazelnut, complicated by exotic lichee and rose oil. Supple and quite subtle in the mouth but with plenty of fat and breadth. Very stony and suave chardonnay, with a long, spicy finish. This, too, really needs a bit of patience.
The 2009 Chardonnay Belle-Cote is once again decidedly extroverted. Layers of rich tropical fruit, passion fruit flowers and pistachio are some of the notes that take shape in the glass. The aromas and flavors are quite intense, but texturally, the wine less interesting as elements of heaviness are present. (AG)
Sleek and restrained, with flavors that build slowly, revealing subtle pear, fig, tangerine and honeysuckle notes that unfold gracefully, ending with a tight focus and smoky, toasty, fruity flavors.
