The 2004 Chardonnay The Judge is about as fine a Chardonnay as one is likely to find in the world. The wine as one might expect is from the same vineyard and simply the most concentrated barrels of what is already a very concentrated wine. It just has more of everything when compared to the regular 2004 Chardonnay but I think the most striking thing is that from what I can tell he is looking for even more intense minerality in the wine and this wine certainly offers it in spades. It should age for up to a decade.Previously recommended: 2003 Chardonnay (94); 2003 Chardonnay The Judge (99); 2003 Syrah Hudson Vineyard (94+);Fax (707) 963-4512

Then broad dry and full: this is almost too big for the mouth. This glyceral-thick chardonnay boasts staggering volume but in spite of its almost exotic thickness and tropical fruit notes I'd still like to put this in a blind tasting of top grand cru Burgundies. The wine's solid mineral underpinning began to express itself with aeration.
