W&S 91 WA 90 - "Delicate floral aromas that are complemented by notes of Meyer lemon zest, kefir lime and nectarine, and a hint of citrus blossom. Consistent with the nose, the wine fills the mouth with rich citrus and stone fruit flavors that are enhanced by a bright acidity, inviting minerality and lasting vitality."


W&S 91 WA 90 Pts - According to Wine & Spirits - "There’s an earthiness to this chardonnay from Etude’s estate vineyard, an appealing, sweet and spicy chanterelle aroma that builds with air, weaving its way through a textural, almost red-fruited intensity that feels propelled rather than burdened by its ripeness. Hold it until autumn, then decant for roasted Dungeness crab."

According to Robert Parker - "Also outstanding, the 2011 Chardonnay Estate is a Chablis-like effort that only sees neutral oak during its aging. From a cool, challenging vintage, it has turned out extremely well, offering steely, citrusy, honeysuckle notes in the aromas and flavors, and an elegant, fresh, medium-bodied finish."

According to Wine Enthusiast - "This Chardonnay is flamboyantly ripe with orange, peach and vanilla flavors. It’s made in an oaky style that’s appealing to a wide audience, and brightened with crisp acidity."

According to Antonio Galloni - "Etude's 2011 Chardonnay Estate is bright and steely throughout. White flowers, pears, green apples and slate all jump from the glass. The 2011 is quite Chablis-like in its energy and brilliance, the result of the cold year and the blocked malo style. Readers who seek tension in Chardonnay will find much to admire." 14.2% ABV.
