Outer quote mark Bursting forth with extravagant tropical and floral notes, the 2015 Chardonnay Ma Belle Fille has nuances of honey-nut pastry (baklava), ginger, cedar and spice cake. Medium-bodied, the pineapple and passion fruit flavor layers are lifted by a seamless backbone and supported with a decadent creaminess, finishing long and spicy.

Outer quote mark This is really lively and energetic with aromas and flavors of sliced lemons and green apples. Some lime, too. Full-bodied, layered and minerally. Undertones of hot stones and lemongrass. Love the driven finish of freshness. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (5/2018)

Outer quote mark The 2015 Chardonnay Ma Belle-Fille is succulent, rich and expressive, with exotic white truffle, honey, herbs and tropical notes that give the wine its super distinctive personality. Clean mineral notes add breezy freshness to this high-altitude mountain Chardonnay. (AG) Inner quote mark (7/2018)

Outer quote mark Light oak, pear, apple, melon and spice notes gain weight while remaining nimble and refined. This tilts more toward delicacy and nuance than sheer power. Drink now through 2020. (JL) Inner quote mark (11/2017)
