2009 Lion's Tooth Chardonnay
Very powerful, complex aromatics, with deeper florals – hawthorn, goldenrod, fennel – and yellow spice notes: saffron, turmeric, paprika. Hugely concentrated on entry, dense and penetrating, with great saline intensity. Really shows the concentration wrought from low yields. This should live and improve for ages. Relentlessly long.
“The 2009 Lion’s Tooth Chardonnay has expressive lemon curd and orange blossom aromas with hints of pineapple, buttered toast, meal, ginger and chalk dust. Concentrated in the mouth with a medium-full body and excellent mid-palate richness, it has refreshing acidity contrasting the silken texture and lingering long into the finish.” ~ Lisa Perotti-Brown, Robert Parker Wine Advocate
"A rich and delicious wine drinking absolutely at its peak." ~ Steve Smith MW, tasted March 2023
