    A 100% barrel-fermented, relatively new offering the Chardonnay Luminus, which is made from Dijon clones from the Oak Knoll appellation. A brilliant example of Chardonnay, it comes across as a first-growth Chassagne-Montrachet or Meursault. Aromas of honeysuckle, hazelnut and buttered citrus are followed by a medium-bodied white with admirable fruit intensity, decent acidity and nicely integrated wood. This cuvee is put through partial rather than full malolactic, and that appears to preserve a lot of vibrancy and freshness. - Winery

    The outstanding 2013 Chardonnay Luminus comes from the Oak Knoll sector of southern Napa Valley. About 25% new oak is used in this cuvée, and it is made from the newer Burgundian clones of Chardonnay as opposed to the Old Wente selection (which actually came from Burgundy many decades ago). This wine exhibits pineapple, poached pear, honeysuckle and buttery melon notes in addition to a subtle use of wood, and a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel. Consume this beauty over the next 4-5 years. - Robert Parker 91 Points

    Lemon peel, white flowers, crushed rocks and mint are all laced together in the 2013 Chardonnay Luminus, which emerges from a site in the Oak Knoll district. The flavors are bright and beautifully delineated in this impeccably balanced Chardonnay from Beringer. -- Antonio Galloni 90 Points
