Leeuwin Estate 'Art Series' Chardonnay

  • Proef: Sinds het begin van de jaren 90 wordt deze topwijn jaarlijks gelauwerd als één der beste (zeg maar allerbeste) Chardonnay van Australië. Terecht, want dit niveau Chardonnay is zeldzaam en uniek. Leeuwin slaagt erin jaar in jaar uit een uitzonderlijke wijn te vinifieren met een magnifieke structuur, zeer evenwichtig en ongelooflijk geraffineerd. In een recente verticale degustatie van maar liefst 15 jaargangen ‘Art Series’ Chardonnay viel geen enkel millésime uit de boot. Dit is wereldklasse!

Wine Companion 98/100

Supremely elegant and finely balanced, and has absorbed the new oak in a manner worthy of a Grand Cru White Burgundy, leaving the fragrant bouquet and finely structured palate of startling length to occupy centre stage.


Wine Spectator 96/100

"Elegant and graceful, this opens to supple lemon and tangerine flavors, accented by spice, cedar, mineral and white floral touches. Everything is precise and supple, with a juicy touch on the epic finish. Best now through 2026."


Ray Jordan 97/100

"This has to be one of the most delightfully restrained and elegant of any Leeuwin chardonnay I can recall. It is also one of the very best. Everything has come together so perfectly with a mix of creamy stone fruit, roasted cashew and that distinctive grapefruit. The power and lingering intensity are something else. A super wine. Best Drinking: Now to 2028."


James Suckling 94/100

"Fabulous flamboyance and opulence yet a freshness and brightness underneath. Full body, lemon curd, apple meringue undertones. Vibrant finish. Screw cap. Drink now."


Gary Walsh 95/100

"These wines take a little time to roll out, so I've decanted my tasting serve into a large Burgundy glass, and been coming back to it over a few hours. It's a very good release from Leeuwin Estate, and while the oak influence is still pretty formidable, there's a touch more restraint and finesse in the wine these days, or so it seems. Pear, lime, Teddy Bear biscuits, liberal smoky clove spice oak. Medium to full bodied, powerful fruit, glossy feel, but flinty and dry acid cuts it neat and sparkling, and while the clove spice oak is a bit passive, "Gudang Garam" smoking initially, it fades into the wine with air time. Honey, cashew, pear and limey acid roll away long on the finish. Needs time to settle. Decant now, or cellar for at least a few years."


Wine Genius 97/100

"Another sensational release for this flagship Australian Chardonnay. Bright green/yellow in colour with fresh citrus, stone fruit aromatics. The refined aromatics mask the remarkable intensity and depth this wine shows across the palate. The precise line combined the impressive length indicate the pedigree and longevity of this vintage release. Pure joy with the bright grapefruit acidity interlaced with the textural toasted nutty complexity. So much to love about this wine! Drinking Range: 2016-2025."
