100 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Chardonnay Ma Princesse comes from one of the greatest sites for Chardonnay in California, the Ritchie Vineyard in the Russian River Valley. Coming all from Old Wente Chardonnay (40- to 50-year-old vines) and fermented and aged in French oak, it has stunning notes of caramelized peach and lemon, toasted bread, vanilla, and white flowers that develop beautifully with time in the glass. Deep, full-bodied, and opulent on the palate, it carries a racy spine of acidity, beautiful balance, and a great, great finish. Picking a favorite from these 2018 Chardonnays from Morlet is just about impossible, but this is incredible juice that tops out on my scale. I followed this bottle for multiple days and it only improved with air. Enjoy this heavenly Chardonnay any time over the coming decade or more."

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.
