Available for:
Intense aromas of orange blossom, nectarine, peach, and rose petals showcase the marriage of remarkable old-vine Chardonnay with an exceptionally unique terroir in the 2020 'Belle Côte.' The rich, beautifully creamy entry with mouthfeel is followed by a broad, powerful yet balanced mid-palate and an extraordinarily long finish. Hints of toasted almond and pain d'épices embrace an expressive core of marmalade, custard, and nougat. A wonderfully balanced wine, the 2020 'Belle Côte' is approachable in its youth but will continue to blossom for more than a decade.

More linear than la Carriere or Mon Plaisir this vintage, the 2020 Chardonnay Belle Cote boasts narcissus-like florals, white peaches, lime zest and toasted almond on the nose, while the palate is medium to full-bodied and lush yet long and focused, with just a hint of mocha on the finish.

Shows salted butterscotch, peach and tangerine flavors that are polished and focused, with lemon blossom, poached pear and candied ginger notes on a plush, elegant frame. Features a fresh edge of acidity.

The 2020 Chardonnay Belle Côte is an attractive wine, but it also gives the impression of being not fully developed. Overall, the 2020 is raw, unpolished and simply lacking depth, which is not uncommon in this vintage. In 2020, the Belle Côte includes lots that would have typically been used for the Cuvée Indigene.
