“This new release from Morlet is truly dazzling; a bouquet brimming with flakey buttery biscuits, lemon curd, succulent orange pith leads to a creamy and ultra-velvety palate balanced with sweet baking spice and stunning minerality.  A must-have for fans of Peter Michael and Marcassin.” - California Wine Advisors

BACKGROUND
Robert Parker on Morlet: “Run, don’t walk and splurge for the Luc Morlet Wine Express. Morlet, who comes from a family of winemakers in Champagne and consults at the Peter Michael Winery where his brother Nicolas is in charge of the winemaking, has his own operation on Route 29 north of St. Helena. His Napa cuvées were reviewed in Issue #215. His Sonoma offerings are remarkable wines that are about as good as wines made from Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah can be. Morlet is not only a fabulous winemaking talent, he knows how to bring the French savoir faire of complexity, elegance and precision to the ripe, concentrated, intense fruit of California.”
