100The Wine Advocate

...nose of orange blossoms, ripe pears, peach cobbler and lime leaves with nuances of oyster shells, struck flint and cashews. The medium to full-bodied palate delivers layer upon layer of citrus, stone fruit and minerally flavors with a racy line of freshness and silken texture, finishing with amazing persistence.

100Jeb Dunnuck

...notes of caramelized stone fruits, apricots, toasty oak, honeysuckle, and baking spices. With bright acidity, beautiful depth of fruit, and stunning balance, it's a blockbuster styled effort that stays pure, elegant, and weightless.

95Vinous / IWC

...soaring aromatics and beautifully layered fruit. Rich, unctuous and flamboyant, the 2018 is a super-classic Chardonnay from Luc and Jodie Morlet.


United States, California, Sonoma County

Sonoma County is not an AVA, but it is a commonly used informal designation for wines made outside of more specific AVAs within Sonoma, which is a large wine producing region just west of Napa Valley. Though Sonoma is often overshadowed by its glamorous neighbor Napa Valley, it has a long history of wine production. The area specialized in jug wine until the mid-20th century, when Sonoma producers took a cue from Napa and started improving quality. Unlike Napa, where Cabernet Sauvignon is king, Sonoma specialized in Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Zinfandel, though excellent Cabs are produced too. There are at present 16 AVAs within Sonoma County, and, like much of the West Coast of the United States, new AVAs are created in Sonoma County with regularity. Some Sonoma appellations, such as the Russian River Valley, are renowned for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.


White Wine, Chardonnay

This white variety originated in Burgundy, but is now grown around the world. Its flexibility to thrive in many regions translates to wide flavor profile in the market. Chardonnay is commonly used in making Champagne and sparkling wines.
