Peter Michael Chardonnay Knights Valley Point Rouge 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Point Rouge, our consummate Chardonnay, is our winemaker’s selection of the absolute top barrels from the entire vintage. These barrels were singled out for their exceptional quality and how they enhanced the overall blend. From the 2006 vintage, 10 barrels were gradually isolated from the cellar. The final cuvée was completed in December 2007, and is comprised of 10 barrels from the vineyards of La Carrière, Belle Côte, Ma Belle-Fille and the Alexander Mountain Estate. The judicious assemblage benefited from an extended ‘sur lies’ maturation.

Two, the wines would be elegant rather than overstated. Three, there would be a hundred-year commitment to the development of a great estate. Read less

Tasting Notes:

The 2006 Point Rouge is an exceptional wine, offering a unique combination of elegance, complexity, and richness. The nose is redolent of golden delicious apple, citrus oils, orange rind, William pear, acacia, and candied pineapple accented by notes of wet stone, coconut, crème brûlée, honeysuckle, chestnut skin, vanilla, and white truffle. Seamless and rich, the palate offers a rare harmony of the components as well as extraordinary tactile persistence. Already extremely refined, the wine will gain even more complexity in 3-4 years and should continue to age gracefully.
