JEB DUNNUCK 99 POINTS - "The 2018 Chardonnay Ma Douce (which is named after winemaker Luc Morlet's wife) shows a more racy, focused style compared to the Coup de Coeur and has gorgeous notes of caramelized lemon, orange blossom, white flowers, spice, and toasted bread. Coming from the Fort Ross-Seaview region of the Sonoma Coast, it has a touch of marine-like salinity, full-bodied richness, flawless balance, and a monster of a finish. It's another riveting Chardonnay from Morlet that will evolve for 8-10+ years. This cuvee was aged 14 months in 25% to 33% new French oak."

ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 97 POINTS - "Ma Douce comes from a vineyard in Fort Ross-Seaview—not far from Marcassin vineyard. It is planted mainly to Old Wente clone selection. The 2018 Chardonnay Ma Douce is beautifully scented of lime blossoms, grapefruit, lemon curd and sea spray with nuances of beeswax, baking bread, toasted almonds and yuzu zest. The medium to full-bodied palate bursts with intense citrus and mineral sparks, delivering fantastic tension and a satiny texture, finishing very long and invigorating. 425 cases were made."
