User Reviews for Peter Michael Chardonnay Knights Valley Point Rouge

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 enhancement to the overall blend. Twelve barrels from the 2008 vintage were gradually isolated in the cellar. The final cuvée was completed in December 2009, and contains barrels from the vineyards of La Carrière, Belle Côte, Ma Belle-Fille and the Alexander Mountain Estate. The judicious assemblage benefited from extended ‘sur lies’ maturation.

Tasting Notes:

Elegant, complex and rich, the 2008 Point Rouge is an exceptional wine. The nose is filled with aromas of ripe apple, citrus oils, orange rind, William pear, dried apricot and candied pineapple. Seamless and rich in the mouth, notes of coconut, crème brûlée, honeysuckle, chestnut skin, vanilla and white truffle are framed with a wet stone-like minerality. The wine offers a rare harmony as well as extraordinary tactile persistence. Already refined, the wine will gain even more complexity in 4-5 years and should continue to age gracefully for two decades.
