External Reviews for Peter Michael Chardonnay Knights Valley Point Rouge
The 2006 Chardonnay Ma Belle Fille, which comes from their highest altitude vineyard, with a southerly exposure, and again, mostly old Wente clones like virtually all of these Chardonnays, has notes of quince, nectarine, white currants, and almost a liqueur of rocks. The wine has superb concentration and strikes me as one of the very best of the 2006 Chardonnays made in California.
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
Elegant and feminine, the 2004 Chardonnay Belle Cote offers aromas of tropical fruit, crushed rocks, sweet white currants, and peaches. It does not have the body or richness of the 2003, but it is close in style.
Pure, rich and focused, showing a mix of ripe pear, apple and mineral flavors, with floral, fruity aromas that give this a distinctive quality. Turns delicate, flinty and refreshing on the finish. Drink now through 2011.
