It shows a bit more depth than the estate's other 2010s and also slightly riper tendencies in the fruit. Still I find the qualitative difference between this and Ma Princesse minimal at least at present. There is plenty of intensity in the tropical fruit spices and almonds that frame the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2018. -Antonio Galloni

(from Morlet's best barrels a wine that he describes as "equivalent to" the Point Rouge chardonnay he made at Peter Michael where Morlet was in charge of winemaking from 2001 through 2005): Complex nose melds candied lime fresh hazelnut exotic fruits and iodiney minerality. Uncompromisingly dry but dense chardonnay with flavors of apple and oyster shell and a chewy impression of extract. Outstanding incipient complexity here but the most closed and least fruity today of this trio of chardonnays. This dense soil-driven wine finishes with a hint of phenolic character and saline and Poire William notes. For the cellar and potentially better in five years than the Ma Douce and Ma Princesse.

Selected from one of Morlet's best barrels of Sonoma Coast and Russian River Valley chardonnay. Bright straw color. The well-rounded nose leads with aromas of brown pear French vanilla lemon rind and a hint of candied almond. The palate is richly textured yet elegant supported by precise flavors of red apple lime hazelnut and a lingering salinity. A bit dense at the moment the finish unravels with stunning length. Although perhaps a bit tightly wound now this holds great promise after a spell in the cellar. 100 cases produced. Drink from 2014-2020.
