2016 Morlet ‘Coupe de Couer’ Chardonnay Sonoma Valley
“Coupe de Couer”, meaning “Heart’s Astonishment,” is a blend of Morlet’s top two vineyards’ best two barrels. It’s always a Cuvee of the most powerful and elegant barrels in the lineup. Jeb Dunnock went wild for this vintage, calling it “perfection in a glass.” He said it “offers extraordinary notes of caramelized citrus, toasted brioche, marzipan, white flowers and a liqueur of rocks-like minerality. With full-body, incredible purity, a layered, huge palate presence, yet a weightless, elegant texture, it needs to be tasted to be believed. Hats off to Morlet for an incredible Chardonnay.” Only two barrels produced.
100 points, Jeb Dunnuck
