Wine Enthusiast 94 Pts - Another fine study in chardonnay by the esteemed family from Beaune, this wine’s voluptuous ripeness makes it more demonstrative and plump than the Edition Limitée. Its ripe pineapple and pear accents are buoyed by mouthwatering, mouthfilling acidity and a leesy textural grip. Give it some age to gain more contour; then it will be delicious with soft-shell crab.
Tasting Notes - Each vintage of Arthur shares certain characteristics, on the nose, palate and finish, and 2013 is no different. We are intrigued by the pronounced stony quality and very interesting mineral nuances this year. Aromatically, there are discreet pear flavors combined with a touch of fresh almonds and mint. The palate is finely balanced with a wonderful round texture and excellent length. Overall we find this Arthur harmonious and very well integrated already and we wouldn't hesitate to enjoy the wine now. 13.9% ABV.
