91 points "The 2010 Chardonnay Belle-Cote is a gorgeous, symmetrical wine with no beginning and no end. Sweet floral notes, licorice, mint and lemon are some of the nuances that emerge from this textured, graceful wine. The finish turns intensely aromatic and expressive. Here, too, there is considerable weight in the glass. (91-94)." Best 2015-2030

96 points "From their oldest vines planted with Old Wente as well as See and Rued clones is the 2015 Chardonnay Belle Côte. This vineyard was planted in 1990, and the production was super-small in 2015, with only 1,900 cases versus more than 3,000 produced in 2014. Both vintages have turned out nearly perfect wines, and like the other cuvées, these wines see nearly a year in 50%-60% new oak before being moved to tank and bottled unfiltered. In 2015, these 25-year-old vines produced an incredible wine of great depth, with notes of orange marmalade, pineapple jam, crème brûlée, brioche, honeysuckle and tropical fruit. There is also an underlying minerality that is attributable to the deep root system that the vines possess. (96-99)."

93 points "By Stephen Tanzer Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, May/Jun 06 ($70) Good bright, pale yellow. Subdued but pure aromas of peach, nectarine, orange rind, rose petal and lichee. Although rather backward, this began suppler than the Carriere despite conveying an impression of solid acidity. Very dry and sophisticated chardonnay with excellent length. I found myself raising my score every time I went back to this wine, which gained sweetness with aeration. 93(+?) points "
