97 points Lisa Perrotti-Brown (The Wine Independent): "The 2021 Ma Belle-Fille needs a little coaxing to bring out notes of lemongrass, crushed rocks, Marcona almonds, and lemon drops, leading to notes of Golden Delicious apples and juicy pears. The medium-bodied palate slowly grows in the mouth, with intense apple and mineral layers supported by seamless freshness, finishing with jaw-dropping grace. Drink 2024-2040 (Jun 2023)."
96 points Audrey Frick (JebDunnuck.com): "Pouring a youthful yellow hue with silver highlights, the 2021 Chardonnay Ma Belle-Fille is ripe with fresh apricot, orange blossoms, and delicate baking spices. Full-bodied, with a fresh, clean texture, a rounded feel, and no harsh edges, the palate reveals fresh notes of cantaloupe, pithy citrus, vanilla, and flowers. Drink 2023-2033. (Jul 2023)."
95 points Wine Spectator: "Strikes remarkable balance between bright, fresh acidity and rich notes of lemon curd, mango puree, poached pear, dried pineapple and honeycomb on a sleek frame. Reveals hints of dried lemon grass and pineapple sage on the fresh, aromatic finish. Drink now through 2032. (Jul 2023)."
95 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2021 Chardonnay Ma Belle Fille is airy, gracious and classy. It is also one of the more understated wines in this range. Hints of apricot, chamomile, spice, mint and orange zest are beautifully lifted. The Belle Fille is very much on the delicate side for Peter Michael, largely a reflection of elevation, the highest on the property. Drink 2025-2033 (Aug 2023)."
