Morlet Family Vineyards Ma Princesse Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2017

$95

98 Points Parker                                                           Morlet makes some of the most coveted wines in Sonoma and all of California. These are some of the top-scoring wines of the vintage. Limited. 98 Points Robert Parker: "A barrel sample from Old Wente clones planted on Goldridge soils, the 2017 Chardonnay Ma Princesse gives up super intense, preserved lemons, chalk dust, struck flint and lime leaves notes with touches of pie crust, mandarin peel, pink grapefruit and marzipan. Full-bodied, wonderfully concentrated and demonstrating bags of nuances, it's complimented by fantastic freshness, finishing very long and very savory. 350 cases are expected to be made and released in the spring of 2019." In St. Helena, the heart of the Napa Valley, Luc and Jodie Morlet handcraft vins de terroirs and unique cuvées from the surrounding Napa Valley and Sonoma Coast. Meticulously farmed vineyards and low-intervention winemaking techniques produce powerful yet refined wines displaying personality, complexity and graceful aging capability. By taking Old World principles and adapting them to California, the Morlet style results in wines which are harmonious in their intensity, richness and refinement. Unwavering commitment to quality leads to small yields, attentive sorting, and the highest standard when blending. Thus, a very limited amount of each wine is produced.

Really delicious. Lovely rich fruit with some toasted marshmallow and brioche notes.
