97+ 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.

97+ Points Robert Parker: "Ma Douce comes from a vineyard in Fort Ross-Seaview—not far from Marcassin Vineyard. It is planted mainly to Old Wente clone selection. A barrel sample to be bottled in February 2021, the Morlet 2019 Chardonnay Ma Douce charges out of the gate with exuberant notes of ripe Bosc pears, green guava and applesauce with suggestions of powdered ginger, honeycomb and peach blossoms. The medium to full-bodied palate delivers mouth-coating apple and pear layers with loads of spicy accents and balanced freshness, finishing long and fragrant. 500 cases are due to be made."

97 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "The Morlet 2019 Ma Douce is a beauty, and it has a slightly richer style than the 2020 while staying pure, focused, and elegant. Gorgeous honeysuckle, white flowers, toasted bread, and stone fruits emerge from the glass, and its medium to full-bodied and flawlessly balanced, with integrated acidity and a great finish. Its brilliant today with air yet will benefit from a year in bottle and have at least a decade of longevity."

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.
