Critic Notes

The 2009 Chardonnay The Judge sparkles on the palate with brilliant layers of fruit. It is bright, articulate and beautifully centered from start to finish. There is a weightless richness that is almost impossible to describe for its pure elegance. A dazzling, crystalline finish rounds out the flinty, mineral-drenched notes. This is easily the equal of any Chardonnay being made in the world today. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2024. Dec 2011, www.robertparker.com

Score: 98-/100Antonio Galloni

Diary of a 2012 Champagne Academy alumnus Day Five
And so under heavy clouds again we trekked into the Lanson headquarters for the last lecture "From the Cellar to the Consumer" which was technically the most relevant, or at least the one we should relate to most. There were a lot of market figures to absorb so we were quite overwhelmed by the time we met the cellar master. ...
