91pts Wine & Spirits ("Year's Best Chardonnay")
Our 10th anniversary of Lumière! Wild yeast fermentation, weekly battonage, clonal selection and special cooperage give this chardonnay its unique personality. Lovely aromas of apple, pear, peach and honeysuckle merge with crisp flavors of tangerine, hazelnut and crème brulée, all riding along on a delicate creamy richness, and finishing with its trademark minerality. A fellow winemaker once called Lumière a China Doll. This one has plenty of curves.
