MORLET 2013 CHARDONNAY "MA PRINCESSE" RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY 750mL

This is the personal label of Luc Morlet and his wife Jodie. From 1996-2000 Luc made the wines at Newton, where he helped to craft their Unfiltered Chardonnay, a favorite among collectors. He then became the head winemaker for Peter Michael Winery and crafted their wines from the 2001-2005 vintages, where his wines earned up to 99 points!

This vineyard on the bench of Sonoma County’s Russian River benefits from ideal conditions for the Old Wente field selection, renowned for its richness. The concentration originating from the petite size of the berries is enhanced by classical Burgundian wine-making techniques. This wine is dedicated to the Morlet's daughter, Claire Morlet: “Ma Princesse.”

ROBERT PARKER 96-98 POINTS - "Run, don’t walk – take your checkbook or credit card out and splurge for the Luc Morlet Wine Express. Morlet, who comes from a family of winemakers in Champagne and consults at the Peter Michael Winery where his brother Nicolas is in charge of the winemaking, has his own operation on Route 29 north of St. Helena. His Napa cuvées were reviewed in Issue #215. His Sonoma offerings are remarkable wines that are about as good as wines made from Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah can be. Morlet is not only a fabulous winemaking talent, he knows how to bring the French savoir faire of complexity, elegance and precision to the ripe, concentrated, intense fruit of California."

"The 2013 Chardonnay Ma Princesse offers up scents of honeyed peach, poached pears, brioche, honeysuckle and caramelized citrus. Full-bodied with a Bâtard-Montrachet-like richness and intensity as well as background minerality, this profound white wine should drink well for 10+ years."
