($75) Light, hazy yellow. Energetic nose evokes Meyer lemon, tangerine, anise and smoky lees. Fleshy, deeply concentrated citrus and melon flavors are complicated by brown butter and honeysuckle nuances. Becomes stonier with air and finishes with excellent clarity and sweet persistence. Plenty of power here, but this wine's precision was what struck me.

The full-bodied, rich, intensely flavored 2007 Chardonnay Belle Cote offers abundant tropical fruit, lychee nut, apricot, spice box, caramelized peach, and wet stone characteristics intertwined with a smoky almond-like note.

Ultrarich and concentrated, built around a core of ripe fig, melon, ripe pear and spice notes. Keeps the focus on the fruit. Long and persistent.

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."
