External Reviews for Peter Michael Chardonnay Knights Valley Point Rouge
Ultrarich and concentrated, built around a core of ripe fig, melon, ripe pear and spice notes. Keeps the focus on the fruit. Long and persistent. Drink now through 2012.
The 2001 Chardonnay Belle Côte exhibits exotic tropical fruit notes, a layered, opulent texture, medium to full body, less minerality than La Carriere, beautiful layers of fruit, and a stunning finish. This brilliant effort should drink well for 5-7 years.
Another brilliant effort is the 2007 Chardonnay Ma Belle Fille. Filled with notes of pineapples, honeyed melons, nectarines, and white currants, it reveals more toasty oak than its siblings as well as a smoky, roasted nut character. This full-bodied, utterly profound Chardonnay could easily pass for a Batard-Montrachet from France.
The 2007 Chardonnay Belle Cote is sensational. An intoxicating nose of lemon blossoms, poached pear, white peach, and crushed stone soars from the glass of this full-bodied wine. It has zesty acidity, great purity, length, and depth, and is certainly a profound example of Chardonnay from hillside vineyards in Knight s Valley. This wine should drink well for up to a decade
One of the top cuvees of the vintage, the 2004 Chardonnay Ma Belle-Fille may be even better than its 2003 counterpart. With fabulous intensity, a remarkably layered texture, loads of honeysuckle, orange marmalade, lemon oil, tropical fruit, and a rich, concentrated finish, this superb offering should drink well for 5-7 years.
