($80) Greenish gold. Tropical fruits, peach and dusty spices on the nose. Juicy and intensely flavored, with a strong note of toasty lees adding depth to the lively orange and pit fruit flavors. The brisk finish features a refreshingly bitter note of grapefruit pith and clings with very good smoky persistence.

Contrasting with that is the 2008 Chardonnay Mon Plaisir, which reveals more white peach, nectarine and citrus oil notes as well as a slightly richer, thicker texture, good acidity, slightly higher alcohol (15.3%) and a smaller production of approximately 1,000 cases. This beauty should age nicely for 7-10 years.

Unctuous and layered, rich and creamy, showing opulent fig, melon and honeysuckle flavors that are full-blown and flow easily, with touches of ginger and honey. Complex, intense 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."
