    Description

    Kongsgaard Chardonnay 2012
    The Judge
    Bottle (12)

    The Urlik Cellar. A well-curated parcel from a Los Angeles collector. Wines were purchased on release and stored in a professional wine facility.

    "Honey, apricot jam, cinnamon, tangerine peel and rich, tropical-infused notes meld together in the 2012 Chardonnay The Judge. Rich, oily and voluptuous on the palate, the 2012 boasts marvelous depth and pure texture. Think of the Judge as more of an elixir than a wine. The 2012 is superb." (96 pts. Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Sep. 2014)

    "Also amazing, the 2012 Chardonnay The Judge offers impressive aromas of tangerines, orange marmalade, wet rocks, quince, spring flowers and honeysuckle. Impressively full-bodied and majestic with terrific acidity, it is a tour de force in Chardonnay. Furthermore, it is about as “natural” as possible. Thankfully, Kongsgaard is not one to deal in the quintessential B.S. that now seems so prevalent." (98 pts. Robert M. Parker, Jr., Wine Advocate #215, Oct. 2014)
