94 points "The 2007 Chardonnay Ma Belle Fille ratchets up the level of performance. The good news is that there are just under 2,800 cases of this wine in the 2007 vintage. Super-ripe peach, nectarine, orange blossom, white currant, and stony mineral notes jump from the glass of this wine. It has full-bodied texture, superb purity, and tremendous depth and richness. All of these Chardonnays are aged in a combination of 33-80% new oak depending on the cuvee, and of course, are largely fermented with indigenous yeasts, kept on their lees, and bottled without any fining or filtration. (94-96)."

95 points "Deliciously complex, with a rich, elegant, layered presentation of citrus-infused green apple, spice and toasty oak. Subtle honeydew melon flavors emerge on the finish. A shade lighter on its feet than Mon Plaisir. Drink now through 2013. 2,780 cases made. –JL" Best -2013
