94 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2013 Chardonnay Golden Slope is incredibly inviting, with superb balance between some of its more overt, oily textures and the underlying minerality that lies in the background. A host of white orchard fruit, apricot, honey and spice nuances open up as this plush, silky Chardonnay shows off its alluring, racy personality. Drink: 2016-2021. (Aug 2015)"

92 points Jeb Dunnuck (Wine Advocate): "A big, rich Chardonnay that does everything right, the 2013 Chardonnay Golden Slope from the team at Liquid Farm gives up lots of toast and brioche to go with ripe orchard fruits, buttered citrus and a touch of white flowers. Medium to full-bodied, balanced and clean, with a great mix of laser-like focus and building richness, it's a serious Chardonnay that will evolve nicely for at least 5-6 years. The elevage here was 15 months in just 12% new French oak. (Aug 2015)"

Producer notes: "The first vintage's barrels reminding us of some of what we are obsessed with about whites from Beaune, we decided something honoring the Cote d'or was in order - hence, Golden Slope. Profile: Smoky minerals, iodine, lemon curd, heady orchard fruit, ginger tea, liquid sunshine. This year's Golden Slope was bottled about a month later than the 2012 (on Christmas eve-Eve 12/23 to be exact), so give her a little time in a decanter/your glass if opening in the near term. This vintage will take just a bit more patience although she is tasting stunning already. Aging: 14 months -- 88% neutral fermentation and aging with 12% new. Alcohol 14.0%."
