The 2016 Chardonnay Ma Princesse comes from Old Wente clone vines in the Ritchie vineyard in Russian River. It hits the ground running with bold notions of pineapple, white peaches and green guava plus suggestions of almond croissant and popcorn plus a waft of honeysuckle. Full-bodied, rich and decadent in the mouth, it has a wonderfully creamy texture and bags of tropical fruit and savory layers, finishing long and layered.
Sourced from the Old Wente clone in the Ritchie Vineyard in the Russian River Valley, the 2016 Chardonnay Ma Princesse is another sensational effort from Luc Morlet. Honeysuckle, marzipan, caramelized citrus, and hints of tangerine all flow to powerful, deep, concentrated Chardonnay that’s classic Russian River Valley all the way. It’s a big, rich wine that never puts a foot wrong.
The 2016 Chardonnay Ma Princesse, from Ritchie Vineyard, captures plenty of Russian River resonance. Baked apple, pear, flowers, mint and candied citrus all run through this super-expressive, layered Chardonnay. Powerful and yet also effortless, Ma Princesse is loaded the personality. Moreover, it is a terrific example of the house style.
