96 points "94-96 pts. One of the top cuvees of the vintage, the 2004 Chardonnay Ma Belle-Fille may be even better than its 2003 counterpart. With fabulous intensity, a remarkably layered texture, loads of honeysuckle, orange marmalade, lemon oil, tropical fruit, and a rich, concentrated finish, this superb offering should drink well for 5-7 years. " Best 2005-2010

95 points "Wonderful expression and purity of Chardonnay fruit, accented by smoky oak. The core fig, apple, pear and earthy nuances take on a butterscotch note as the finish sails on, unveiling one layer of flavor after another. Remarkable. Drink now through 2008. 1,752 cases made. (JL)"
