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.

The powerful 2004 Chardonnay Point Rouge is unevolved and backward with high acidity. It behaves like a young red wine in the mouth, revealing plenty of tannin, huge body, and loads of creme brulee, tangerine, lemon grass, buttered citrus, and smoky hazelnut characteristics. This stunning Chardonnay will age well for 7-10 years. - Robert Parker (12/2006)

Vinous 95 points

Green-tinged pale yellow color. Tight, bright aromas of crystallized pineapple and lemon peel. Fatter and larger-scaled than the Cuvee Indigene, but less open and more discreet today despite its superb depth of flavor and impression of power. But this very dry, classic, youthfully unevolved wine boasts outstanding thickness, concentration and chewiness of texture, not to mention great length. I'd lay this one down for at least two or three years before pulling the cork.- Stephen Tanzer (5/216)
