Histoire du domaine Cullen Cullen est l’un des pionniers de la Margaret River, son nom est devenu le synonyme de l’excellence des petits domaines viticoles d’Australie.

Robert Parker (RP) : 97 Points (2015)
Always one of Australia's finest Chardonnays, the 2015 Kevin John Chardonnay doesn't disappoint. Despite being completely barrel-fermented and aged in 73% new French oak, the toast element is minimal, the wood serving mainly to enhance the medium-bodied wine's textural qualities and amplify the fruit. Refined notes of white peaches and citrus weave in and out, starting quietly but growing in elegant intensity as the wine progresses across the palate, finishing dry, silky and savory on the nearly endless finish.

James Halliday (JH) : 97 Points (2015)
Picked on fruit and flower days, wild-fermented in French barriques for 5 months (75% new) and allowed to go through mlf. Wastes no time in asserting its blue blood ancestry with vital freshness and citrussy acidity retained despite the mlf. The layers of white flowers, white flesh stone fruit and grapefruit will become progressively richer and more complex with age, but it's so well balanced and full of life there is every reason to enjoy this chardonnay young.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 92 Points (2015)
Intense and bold, offering a spicy mouthful of buttery brioche, marmalade and lemon curd notes. Rich and creamy, with plenty of acidity to keep the flavors fresh and lively. Drink now through 2023.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 90 Points (2014)
One of the top wines from one of Margaret River's leading producers, Cullen's 2014 Kevin John is certainly opulent, but the full malolactic fermentation and eight months in new oak seem to be masking the beautiful, biodynamically farmed fruit. Notes of butterscotch, pineapple and melon rind lead into a rich, toasty, nutty palate, with balanced acidity to keep things fresh. Drink now–2024.

James Suckling (JS) : 93 Points (2013)
This smells and tastes like a top Meursault with so many subtle yet intense aromas of cooked apples and cream plus hints of minerals. Full body, lots of fruit and a yogurt, dried apple and pineapple flavor. Long and lively. Biodynamically grown. Screw cap. Drink now.

Antonio Galloni (Vinous) (AG) : 94 Points (2012)
Jul/Aug '14 by Josh Raynolds. Greenish yellow. Heady aromas of ripe citrus and orchard fruits, honeysuckle, iodine and candied ginger, with subtle lees and smoky mineral qualities in the background. Juicy, incisive and pure, offering fresh tangerine, pear and chamomile flavors lifted by tangy acidity. This silky, seamless yet penetrating chardonnay finishes with a whiplash of lively citrus fruits and lingering floral character. I don't recall ever having a better example of this consistently outstanding Australian white wine. Incidentally, readers lucky enough to own some of the 2004 version of this wine (which was not called "Kevin John" back then) are sitting on some really outstanding chardonnay. A bottle that I drank in late May was still quite youthful, but beginning to show subtle nuttiness to go with its intense citrus fruit and pear skin flavors. I'd be in no hurry to drink it but wouldn't hesitate to enjoy it now either.-- Josh Raynolds
