93 points "(90-93pts) The 2010 Chardonnay Mon Plaisir caresses the palate with layers of effortless, gracious fruit. The 2010 is all about texture, richness and body. Pastry, graphite and flowers are some of the nuances that wrap around the generous finish. There is a volume and creaminess in the Mon Plaisir that is highly appealing. This is the first vintage of Mon Plaisir to be made entirely from estate-grown fruit. The main clones in the 2010 are Wente and Montrachet. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2020. " Best 2015-2020

92 points "Green-tinged yellow. Pear, fig and tangerine on the pungent nose. Pliant flavors of orchard fruits, spices and honeysuckle are nicely framed and lifted by a citrus element. Finishes with honey and citrus notes and excellent clarity; this is showing more heft than the La Carriere right now."

90 points "A rich, subtle combination of elegant pear, fig and citrus, with layers of smoky, toasty oak, builds to a complex mix of flavors, with a touch of marshmallow and subtle fruit and oak notes. Drink now through 2011. 1,300 cases made. –JL" Best 2008-2011
