93 points "By Stephen Tanzer Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, May/Jun 06 ($70) Good bright, pale yellow. Subdued but pure aromas of peach, nectarine, orange rind, rose petal and lichee. Although rather backward, this began suppler than the Carriere despite conveying an impression of solid acidity. Very dry and sophisticated chardonnay with excellent length. I found myself raising my score every time I went back to this wine, which gained sweetness with aeration. 93(+?) points "

94 points "92-94 pts. Elegant and feminine, the 2004 Chardonnay Belle Cote offers aromas of tropical fruit, crushed rocks, sweet white currants, and peaches. It does not have the body or richness of the 2003, but it is close in style. "

90 points "Sleek and refined, rich and elegant, with a silky band of anise, pear, hazelnut and ginger. Retains its elegance on a long, soothing finish that keeps repeating the fruit and light oak and mineral themes. Drink now through 2008. 1,716 cases made. (JL)"
