Tasting Notes

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Peter Michael's delicious 2008 L'Apres Midi, a blend of 86% Sauvignon Blanc and 14% Semillon. One of the finest examples of this cuvee they have made in many years, the 2008 has the texture of a top Chardonnay. One-hundred percent barrel fermented, it exhibits abundant amounts of honeyed lemon grass, fig, spice box, melon, and waxy fruit flavors. Zesty acidity provides vivaciousness to all of its component parts. It should drink well for 4-5 years." (02/10) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Wonderfully rich, complex and fragrant, featuring a mix of brioche, fresh apricot, honeysuckle and dried citrus peel. The texture is full, and the acidity weaving around the flavors keeps everything bright. Drink now through 2012." (08/10) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Green-tinged yellow. Cool aromas of quince, pink grapefruit, melon and mint. Dense, chewy and mineral-driven, with round but dry flavors of lime, honeydew and fresh herbs. Pure and intense wine with an intriguing minerality that adds definition and bite. Finishes chewy and spicy, with admirable clarity and lingering sweetness. No new oak here. This includes 14% semillon, which Morlet says is the highest percentage ever." (May/Jun 10)
