True to its name, the wine is indeed a pleasure: intense and perfumed. The 2017 Mon Plaisir displays an exquisite bouquet of candied fruit, orange, lemon cream, fresh butter, grapefruit and a flint-like minerality, with subtle notes of greengage. The palate is rich, full-bodied and creamy with beautiful hints of fresh lemon, pear, apple and brioche. A mineral character with hints of pain grillé and almond complete the mouth feel of this wine and its long finish. Enjoyable now, it will age for a decade or more.

Wine AdvocateThe barrel sample of 2017 Chardonnay Mon Plaisir leaps from the glass with energetic lime blossoms, Golden Delicious apples and grapefruit notes with suggestions of marzipan, baking bread, crushed rocks and butterscotch plus a waft of green mango. The palate is medium to full-bodied, with wonderful tension and lovely mineral layers giving way to a long, savory finish. 1,320 cases are expected to be made, to be released in July 2019.

Wine SpectatorWell-structured and powerful, with ripe white fruit and melon flavors that feature a light creaminess. Poached pear and spice details linger on the finish. Drink now through 2024. 1,350 cases made.
