2014 DuMOL “CLARE” CHARDONNAY

From Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, “The 2014 Chardonnay Clare has a white peach, preserved lemons and yuzu-scented nose with underlying touches of cedar, buttered toast and shaved almonds. The palate is bold and intensely fruited with a pleasant oiliness, yet it is medium-bodied, finishing long with lovely purity.” 95 Points

From Vinous, “The 2014 Chardonnay Clare Hyde Vineyard is an attractive wine, but it also comes across as a bit less complex than the other Chardonnays in the range. There is no shortage of depth or density, but the aromatics are a bit muted today. The Hyde went into tank with all of its lees, which, along with six months in tank, explains why the wine is not as expressive as some of the other wines in the range. This is a strong set of new releases from DuMOL. Winemaker Andy Smith has really dialed in his approach here over the last few years, and it shows. Harvest dates have been moved up, while in general Smith is seeking a bit more freshness in his wines than was the case a few years ago. That is especially true of the Chardonnays, which now also spend eleven months in barrel followed by six months in tank, a fairly classic aging regime today in Burgundy that is less common in California.” 90-93 Points
