    The 2010 Chardonnay Ma Princesse, from a site in the Russian River, opens up beautifully in the glass. Honey, butterscotch, tropical fruit and sweet spices all blossom as the 2010 shows off its full-bodied personality. This old Wente selection yields very small berries packed with flavor. That intensity is quite evident throughout. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

    (entirely from old Wente clones on Goldridge soil; Ma Douce is 80% Dijon and 20% Wente): Good full yellow. More exotic, high-toned aromas of Poire William, clove and butterscotch. Thicker and fatter than the Ma Douce, conveying a strong impression of dry extract. But there's still a surprising lightness and good energy to the seamless flavors of citrus zest and spices. Finishes with a note of coconut, which I attribute to the Louis Latour barrels used for this bottling (Morlet uses 25% new oak for his chardonnays).

    Killer chardonnay. Luc's French heritage is on display here. This is not a big oaky California chard. Great fruit, minerality, apples and celery. Layers and layers of complexity. A terrific wine opened prior to an evening focused on California cabs. Everyone loved this win.
