95 points "Tremendous; packs in lots of flavor and offers plenty of finesse. It exhibits wonderful aromas of blossoming flowers, ripe pear, fig, apricot and citrus fruit with an opulent, rich mouthfeel that coats the palate. Despite all the up-front fruit and richness, this is an elegantly styled wine. To be released September 2004. Drink now through 2008. 1,440 cases made. (JL)" Best 2005-2008

94 points "Barrel Tasting 92-94 pts. There are 1,240 cases of the 2002 Chardonnay Mon Plaisir. Produced from fruit grown in Jess Jackson’s Alexander Mountain estate vineyard, it is a full-bodied, beautifully textured, opulent effort revealing notes of honeyed pineapple, orange marmalade, and oily flavors backed up by zesty acidity. This big, rich, exuberant Chardonnay is already purring on all cylinders. Drink it over the next 3-5 years. "
