(Morlet notes that these young vines are already beginning to become a source for the Point Rouge blend) Deeply pitched aromas of dried apricot, baked apple and vanillin oak, with a suggestion of tropical fruits. Broad and dry in the middle palate and not yet expressing itself. A bit edgy and phenolic on the finish, with slightly aggressive alcohol. Morlet says this is better than the 2002, but today it's very closed.

The 2003 Chardonnay Ma Belle-Fille reveals a slightly greenish hue to its medium straw color. More tightly knit than its siblings, with more minerality as well as full, powerful, nearly tannic flavors, it is a rich, concentrated wine made from a south-facing hillside vineyard. It should age nicely for 5-7 years.

Exhibits ripe, plump pear, apple and melon flavors that are shaded by pretty toast and vanilla-scented oak notes. Turns rich and creamy on the delicate, elegant finish. 1,424 cases made.

Gorgeous amber, buttery with oak fully dissipated. Like a fine Mersault.
