Tasting Notes:
rated: September 12, 2006 , Wine Spectator winespectator.com
92 points "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. To be released September 2005. Drink now through 2009. 1,424 cases made. (JL)"

93 points "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. "

90 points "By Stephen Tanzer Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, May/Jun 05 (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. 90(+?)? points "
