The 2006 Peter Michael Winery Belle Cote Chardonnay 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.

There are 2,700 cases of the 2006 Chardonnay Belle Cote. This is a large-scaled wine, but with flamboyant marmalade, white currant, honeysuckle, and tropical fruit notes, less minerality than La Carriere, but beautiful acidity and a stony, steely personality not dissimilar to a grand cru in Burgundy such as Corton-Charlemagne. - Robert Parker (12/2008)

Good bright, pale yellow. Subdued but pure aromas of lemon drop, grapefruit, pineapple and hazelnut, complicated by exotic lichee and rose oil. Supple and quite subtle in the mouth but with plenty of fat and breadth. Very stony and suave chardonnay, with a long, spicy finish. This, too, really needs a bit of patience.- Stephen Tanzer (05/2008)
