Issue Issue 162

(from Morlet's best barrels, a wine that he describes as "equivalent to" the Point Rouge chardonnay he made at Peter Michael, where Morlet was in charge of winemaking from 2001 through 2005): Complex nose melds candied lime, fresh hazelnut, exotic fruits and iodiney minerality. Uncompromisingly dry but dense chardonnay with flavors of apple and oyster shell and a chewy impression of extract. Outstanding incipient complexity here but the most closed and least fruity today of this trio of chardonnays. This dense, soil-driven wine finishes with a hint of phenolic character and saline and Poire William notes. For the cellar, and potentially better in five years than the Ma Douce and Ma Princesse.

Luc Morlet showed me one cuvee of 2010, the 2010 Chardonnay Coup de Coeur, which flirts with perfection. This staggering Chardonnay exhibits hints of crushed rocks, white flowers, peaches, honey, creme caramel and subtle vanillin. This deep, layered, unfined and unfiltered Chardonnay should drink well for a decade.

has an exceptional vitality in the nose; waxy lemon, flint, marshmallow, honeycomb and creme brulee. The palate is rich, focused and toasty hazelnut, marshmallow with an intense layered integration. Throughout the wine is delicately poised with an ethereal lightness.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
