Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

($80) Slightly hazy medium yellow. Rich, buttery aromas of stone fruits, hazelnut and lees. Ripe and fairly fat for this cuvee, with a distinctly glyceral impression and classic dryness. This hints at the typical minerality of this normally Chablis-like bottling but I find this year's release to be a bit less sharply delineated than usual.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 92

The 2006 Mon Plaisir exhibits full-bodied notes of peach, popcorn, brioche, and tropical fruit, medium to full body, beautiful depth, and an enticing purity, without any evidence at all of the botrytis that affected Chardonnay vineyards on the Sonoma side of the Mayacamas Mountains.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 90

A rich, subtle combination of elegant pear, fig and citrus, with layers of smoky, toasty oak, builds to a complex mix of flavors, with a touch of marshmallow and subtle fruit and oak notes.

Excellent but the Belle showed better. Not as well rounded as Kistler or as crisp as Kongarrd

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."
