2009 Morlet "La Proportion Dorée" Sonoma County White Blend

SKU #1109252 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Captivating aromas and flavors of lemon, lime, lichee, honeysuckle and menthol, along with an intriguing saline nuance. Then sweet, lush and fat, with harmonious acidity and notes of citrus peel and herbs giving shape and lift to the middle palate. Wonderfully creamy, deep wine with a smooth, very long finish. Luc Morlet will hold back 100 cases of this to release a few years down the road, but he told me he'd really like to taste it after 20 years. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2011)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Luc Morlet’s 2009 Proportion Dorée (Semillon/Sauvignon) is a rich, textured white laced with expressive yellow stone fruits, mango, tangerine and mint. It shows gorgeous inner perfume and lovely overall balance. Despite its richness, there is no sense of heaviness whatsoever. As good as this is today, it really is a wine that needs bottle age to acquire the full breadth of its complexity, especially in the aromatics. The Proportion Doree is made with just one cluster per shoot, with the wings and shoulders cut off. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2012)
