Peter Michael Chardonnay Knights Valley Ma Belle-Fille 2005
At the highest elevation on the estate, the marine inﬂuence on Ma Belle-Fille is greater, resulting in cooler daily temperatures in the summer and autumn months. Situated far above the summer fog ceiling and exposed to the southeast, the vineyard receives the very ﬁrst rays of sunshine each morning and remains sunny all day long. This full exposure combined with cooler temperatures causes its fruit to mature earliest of all the Peter Michael vineyards.
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
External Reviews for Peter Michael Chardonnay Knights Valley Ma Belle-Fille
The 2005 Chardonnay Ma Belle-Fille offers notes of orange blossom, spring flowers, peaches, and hints of poached pears, butter, and smoke. Underlying the enormous richness is phenomenal acidity, a characteristic of the 2005 cool climate Chardonnays. As the wine sits in the glass, a notion of roasted nuts also comes through.
Wine Advocate ReviewThe 2005 Chardonnay Mon Plaisir exhibits extraordinary intensity, full body, great acidity, and orange blossom, lemon oil, wet stone, flower, and tropical fruit notes. With superb intensity as well as remarkable subtlety and freshness, it should drink well for 5-7 years.
