Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

($75) Light, bright yellow. Stone fruits and fresh pineapple on the nose; with notes of talc and iodine adding complexity. The most opulent and exotic of this year's chardonnays but that's strictly relative. Pliant, juicy pear and white peach flavors are lifted by a smoky mineral quality that also contributes shape and backbone. Comes off as the Meursault among a line-up of Pulignys today. Fleshy and smooth on the long finish but still plenty lively and sappy.

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."
