96-99 points Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Wine Advocate): "CIX stands for '109' as this block, planted in 2008 to Montrachet clones, was originally called 'parcel 109' when they purchased it. The 2017 Chardonnay CIX Estate has an incredibly intense nose of lemon peel, green mango, fresh pears and powdered ginger with suggestions of baking bread, chopped cashews, lightly buttered popcorn and crème brûlée. The palate is full-bodied, concentrated and bold with a racy line carrying the citrus and savory layers to an incredibly long finish. (Oct 2018)"

97-98 points James Suckling: "This is very deep and foursquare with fabulous depth and power. Muscular. Cream, yogurt and layers of fruit. Extremely rich and flavorful. Love the finish. Oily at the end. (11/22/18)"

93-96 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2017 Chardonnay CIX Vineyard is unctuous and flamboyant, with a real sense of oiliness and viscosity that is its calling card. Lemon confit, apricot, baked apple, chamomile and lightly tropical notes all fill out the layers effortlessly. I would be in no rush to drink the 2017 soon, despite its considerable immediacy. There is so much to like here. (Dec 2018)"

94 points Wine Spectator: "Suave and rich-tasting, with concentrated flavors of dried pear, baked apple and melon that offer a lilting creaminess. Plush and well-spiced on the unctuous finish. Drink now through 2024. 889 cases made. (5/1/19)"
