2020 Morlet Coup de Coeur Chardonnay
From the same hillside vineyards as ‘Ma Princesse’ and ‘Ma Douce,’ this unique cuvée was judiciously blended from a strictly limited number of selected barrels displaying truly outstanding features. It is our ‘Heart’s Astonishment’ or ‘Coup de Cœur.’
Straw yellow color. Complex bouquet of candied lemon, citrus oils, Reinette apple and strong notes of hazelnut and white truffle. Mineral driven on the palate, the mouth feel is rich yet delicate. Seamless and classic, it is wonderfully subtle and long on the finish. With a very high ageing potential, this wine can be cellared for over a decade.
AG 94: The 2020 Chardonnay Coup de Coeur is a selection of the best barrels in the cellar. Tangerine oil, mint, white flowers and lightly honeyed notes all grace this gorgeous, aromatically expressive Chardonnay. Time in the glass brings out the wine's gorgeous creaminess and textual resonance.
WA 97: A barrel selection and blend that Morlet feels represents his best, the 2020 Chardonnay Coup de Coeur is indeed a prodigious effort. Scents of toasted hazelnuts and white peaches dominate the nose, while the medium to full-bodied palate is plush and silky, with tremendous concentration and length. It's a complete wine, very nicely done.
