Michael Winery Peter l'Esprit des Pavots 2001
L'Esprit des Pavots literally means "The Spirit of the Poppies." This wine was grown in and made from the original Les Pavots vineyard blocks that we completely replanted between 1996-99 due to phylloxera. In replanting, we spared no expense, utilizing only the rarest and best clones of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The 2001 vintage wine made from these young vine blocks, while not quite Les Pavots, captures the "spirit" of the Les Pavots terroir.
External Reviews for Michael Winery Peter l'Esprit des Pavots
The seriousness of a Bordeaux varietal program is evidenced by the quality of Peter Michael's second wine, L'Esprit des Pavots. This is no ordinary second wine, and it is probably inappropriate to even think of it that way as each of the vintages to ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2001 Michael Winery, Peter L'Esprit des Pavots 750ml
Food Pairings for Michael Winery Peter l'Esprit des Pavots
You'll recognize all the familiar Les Pavots notes of blueberry, cassis, licorice, cedar, coffee beans and chocolate. Yet these new vines make unique contributions, such as notes of red cherries and sweet red pepper in the wine’s complex bouquet. L'Esprit des Pavots is lush, concentrated and full-bodied, with abundant youthful tannins and a long finish. L'Esprit des Pavots can be enjoyed now and should age well for a decade.
843 cases of 750ml bottles produced.
Notes: Aged in French oak barrels from selected artisan coopers
