Pinot Noir

Only 1 Available Now

The 2002 Peter Michael Winery le Moulin Rouge Pinot Noir 750 ml is from the Knights Valley region of California. Peter Michael Winery, if you agree with Robert Parker, produces three Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir labels – Clos du Ciel, Ma Danseuse, and La Caprice - that can go toe-to-toe with Burgundy’s DRC…and sometimes win, especially if you consider the lower price point of the Peter Michael. Regularly scoring at least 98 points, these fabulous wines made by winemaker Nicolas Morlet come from their higher elevation Sonoma Coast “Seaview” vineyard. Equally fabulous, scoring high and reflecting an impeccable elegance, are their Chardonnay and Bordeaux blends, which come from both estate vineyards in Knights Valley, Oakville and Sonoma Coast, and from sourced sites in Alexander Valley, Santa Lucia Highlands, and Russian River. Sir Peter Michael is a successful worldwide entrepreneur and engineer with a portfolio of businesses from high tech to hospitality to commercial radio. Knighted by Queen Elizabeth in 1989 in recognition for the prosperity spawned by his work, Sir Peter Michael clearly has a knack for growing successful ventures...and his California wine business is no different.

Wine Advocate 91 points

The 2002 Pinot Noir Le Moulin Rouge (325 cases) displays the same floral characteristics as the 2001 along with striking elegance. Although more superficial on the palate, without the depth and power of the 2001, it is still an elegant, complex beauty that should drink well for 5-6 years. - Robert Parker (2/2005)

Vinous 92 points

(aged in 5% new and 5% once-used barrels) Good bright ruby-red. Sappy aromas of crushed raspberry, blueberry, minerals, violets, Oriental spices, soy sauce and sweet oak. Superrich, broad and dry, with penetrating, highly complex flavors of raspberry, wild strawberry, mint, violet, graphite and Earl Grey tea, along with some high-toned oak. The very long finish repeats the note of tea. More raspberry in character than the blacker 21. This seems rounder and more delicate than the earlier vintage (it's 14.8% alcohol, vs. 15.1% for the '1), and will merit an even higher score if it can absorb more of its oak.- Stephen Tanzer (5/24)
