97 points "95-97 pts. Even better, the 2008 Chardonnay La Carriere (2,100 cases) reveals a greenish hue to its light straw color as well as a distinctive nectarine, orange blossom, pear, and wet stone-like aromas, full-bodied, super-concentrated flavors, and stunning acidity and length. This fabulous, Burgundian-styled Chardonnay will age easily for a decade. " Best 2010-2018

93 points "Young, raw and vibrant, yet rich and concentrated. Still coarse and leesy, but with a rich, solid core of fig, melon, pear and spice. Fullbodied, focused and persistent, gaining depth. Drink now through 2015.—J.L." Best 2010-2015
