This is the finest example of Belle Cote I have yet tasted. A beautifully aromatic wine, with leesy, Burgundian-like aromas, in addition to those of white peaches, citrus, and honey, this full-bodied, well-endowed Chardonnay possesses low acidity, a lush, open-knit, expansive texture, and mouthfilling levels of extract. This is an opulent, flamboyant, exceptionally complex Chardonnay that should drink well for 1-3 years. All of Peter Michael's top wines, including the Chardonnays, are bottled without filtration. Readers should make it a point to visit this winery situated in Knights Valley, not far from the Napa/Sonoma county line. The quality is extraordinary, and the commitment and talent of the winery staff laudatory. Moreover, the winery seems committed to achieving even greater quality. (RP)
Elegant and understated at first, with delicate pear, tangerine and vanilla flavors that build into a more complex and concentrated wine, with hazelnut, citrus and fig. (JL)
