Winemaker's Notes

This wine shows a well balanced finish. It is round and rich. A good year with some great successes in spite of the lack of sun in the summer, something the chardonnay does not particularly like.

Critical Acclaim

"Discreet aromas of soft citrus fruits and powdered stone. Juicy and tightly wound, with a captivating floral perfume in the mouth. For a wine with a light touch, this finishes with impressive thrust, not to mention aromatic persistence. Lafon calls this his favorite Clos de la Barre in a long time, noting that he also likes the 2000 very much."
91 Points

"This is aromatically pure and ripe with spice, brioche and white peach aromas preceding round, precise and detailed medium-bodied flavors that display a subtle trace of backend minerality on the impressively long finish. This is a very solid effort and a fine vintage for this villages level wine."
91 Points
