"96-98pts. The 2012 Chardonnay La Carriere gave the Morlets everything they wanted – great quality and abundant quantity. There are over 2,500 cases of this magnificent wine that flirts with perfection. The harvest occurred a month earlier than it did in 2011, and the result is a wine with terrific acidity and freshness, and amazing delineation for its full-bodied, powerful, opulent, corpulent style. There are lots of orange blossom, poached pear, white peach and pineapple notes in this big, rich, definitive Chardonnay that should drink well for a decade.
