Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: The 2009 Chassagne-Montrachet La Truffiere shows lovely tension and pure, lively minerality. This is one of the brighter more focused of the 2009s here, but there is plenty of...
Wine Spectator: Tangy, focused, spicy and refreshing, with a line of acidity making the wine mouthwatering underneath flavors of lime, grapefruit and green apple. Tightly wound, this has the ...
Stephen Tanzer's IWC: Light, green-tinged gold. Pungent, mineral-accented aromas of pear skin, nectarine, honeysuckle and iodine, with a hint of vanilla. Weighty but surprisingly bright and lithe...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: The estate's 2009 Chablis Vaudesir is one of the more understated selections in this lineup. It is less minerally intense than some of the other wines, but makes up for that w...
Burghound: This also displays very generous wood that fights somewhat with the notably ripe yellow orchard fruit that is borderline exotic in character. The big, powerful and impressivel...
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: The 2009 Chardonnay is youthfully mute at this stage with delicate notes of orange blossom, lightly toasted bread, some oatmeal, under-ripe pineapple and lemon curd. The elega...
