2012--this wine always amazes me. Hints at premier Cru Chablis but has its own signature. Gotta be one of the great Chardonnay values in the world.

Hands down the most balanced, pure, and terroir-transparent white I have ever tasted from Chile. Citrusy and flinty with hints of key lime sorbet and crushed mint.

Pretty awesome. One of the best Chilean whites I've had. Tons of noble reduction, as well as a fair amount of acid, but a little chubby around the edges.

Stoney, delicate candied lemon nose. Back of the mouth lemon rinds, pebble/stone minerals and a hint of leaf before the finish. Nerve and poise but with a rounded resolution.

Minérale, zeste de citrons, souffre, moyennement corsé, assez court. En se réchauffant, note de noix. Sans être un incontournable, se boit très bien.

Light gold color. Expressive nose of lemon, rocks, pepper and sea breeze. On the palate, great acidity, fresh impression, good flavor concentration, touch of roundness and spices, medium length, but so good. Salty and mineral with citrus fruit flavor on an interesting depth. QPR more than good. Makes me ask why summer is not there yet so I could drink this wine by the pool…

Excellent (or 91 if you prefer).
