You'll be happy to know Robert Parker loves this wine!

"rich and creamy, with waves of ripe fruit that caress the palate. Scents of light honey, toastiness and hazelnuts add layers of complexity and nuance. The wine shows terrific detail, with a vein of graphite and minerality....93 points"

I know it's comforting to have the RP validation.

Q1] So is it worth 8 bottles of the organic Chardonnay Brut from Argentina?
Q2] While Parker likes a LOT of wines I could never drink with food, that doesn't mean their strange [to me] purpose isn't valid, if that's what Nature gave us. Mostly these wines are manipulated for that end, so isn't that a costly waste of effort?


Champagne, the definition of manipulated wine, may it live long and mighty.

I'm hunting the Leon Trotskys, the Philip Roths, the Chaucers and the Edith Whartons of the wine world. I want them natural and most of all, I want them to speak the truth even if we argue. With this messiah thing going on, I'm trying to swell the ranks of those who crave the differences in each vintage, celebrate nuance and desire wines that make them think, laugh, and feel. Welcome.
