Peter Michael Chardonnay Knights Valley Mon Plaisir 2006
Mon Plaisir has been produced since 1987 from a vineyard located in the hills above Alexander Valley. The cool and low yielding vineyard enhances the extracted perfume that makes Mon Plaisir a rare single vineyard designation. Long alcoholic and malolactic fermentations allowed us to develop even further its intense and complex bouquet, as well as a round and very ‘gras’ mouthfeel.
Food Pairings for Peter Michael Chardonnay Knights Valley Mon Plaisir
True to its name, this wine is indeed a pleasure: open and intense. It displays an exquisite bouquet of lemon cream, honey and candied grapefruit. The palate is rich, full-bodied and creamy with beautiful notes of fresh lemon, Mirabelle plum and golden delicious apple coupled with brioche and a flinty mineral character. Hints of pain grillé and hazelnut complete the long final mouth feel of this wine.
Aged 12 months in French Oak.
Notes: 100% naturally fermented using native yeast
