Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 90(+?)?

(Morlet notes that these young vines are already beginning to become a source for the Point Rouge blend) Deeply pitched aromas of dried apricot, baked apple and vanillin oak, with a suggestion of tropical fruits. Broad and dry in the middle palate and not yet expressing itself. A bit edgy and phenolic on the finish, with slightly aggressive alcohol. Morlet says this is better than the 2002, but today it's very closed.

The 2003 Chardonnay Ma Belle-Fille reveals a slightly greenish hue to its medium straw color. More tightly knit than its siblings, with more minerality as well as full, powerful, nearly tannic flavors, it is a rich, concentrated wine made from a south-facing hillside vineyard. It should age nicely for 5-7 years.

Exhibits ripe, plump pear, apple and melon flavors that are shaded by pretty toast and vanilla-scented oak notes. Turns rich and creamy on the delicate, elegant finish. 1,424 cases made.

Gorgeous amber, buttery with oak fully dissipated. Like a fine Mersault.

About This Producer


Peter Michael's estate vineyards (founded in 1982) are what make his wines truly exceptional. Sugarloaf Ranch sits high above Knights Valley in eastern Sonoma County, and from its rocky volcanic soil come Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The Alexander Mountain Estate Vineyard, above Alexander Valley, provides additional Chardonnay. All Peter Michael wines are site-driven single vineyard bottlings, whether from the estate or the limited sourced appellations. The line-up of estate wines is supplemented by a Pinot Noir from Pisoni Vineyard called "Le Moulin Rouge."
