Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 95

Hazy yellow. Heady, exotically perfumed bouquet of dried pear, peach pit, candied lemon, iodine and smoky lees, plus a suave floral quality and a touch of anise. Enters rich and weighty but quickly gains tension, offering zesty citrus and orchard fruit flavors and an intense, almost saline mineral underpinning. Finishes smoky and extremely long, with the iodine and pear notes echoing. I find the interplay of richness and minerality to be really intriguing.

The 2009 Chardonnay Ma Belle-Fille opens with butterscotch, spices, savory herbs, tropical fruit, lemon and pastry. This is a powerful, extroverted Chardonnay, yet all of the elements are beautifully balanced. Layers of fruit crescendo towards the rich, intense finish.

Very subtle, yet rich and complex, offering touches of fig, melon, hazelnut and butterscotch. For all its size, this remains a very elegant, understated wine.

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."
