Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 93

Bright, green-tinged yellow. A wild, intense bouquet displays scents of candied lemon, pear, jasmine and iodine, with a strong saline component and a hint of anise. Smoky, penetrating and deeply concentrated orchard and citrus fruit flavors show impressive energy and pick up a smoky quality with air. Rich but animated chardonnay that finishes with outstanding clarity and persistence.

Wine Advocate | 94

The 2011 Chardonnay Belle Cote reveals classic notes of tropical fruits (pineapple, mango), decent acidity, and a full-bodied, plump, up-front mouthfeel. This vintage will evolve quickly and thus is best drunk over the next 3-4 years.

Wine Spectator | 91

Very tight, with a compact core of ripe apple, spice, honeydew melon and ripe fig flavors. Offers a slightly raw texture but has much to admire in terms of flavor, weight and balance.

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."
