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 2009 Chardonnay Belle-Cote is once again decidedly extroverted. Layers of rich tropical fruit, passion fruit flowers and pistachio are some of the notes that take shape in the glass. The aromas and flavors are intense, but texturally, the wine is less interesting, as elements of heaviness are present. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2021. - Antonio Galloni (2/2012)

Green-gold. Ripe melon and peach on the nose, with notes of honey and toasty lees adding an impression of richness. Fleshy and expansive on the palate, displaying dense pit fruit and honeydew flavors and a late note of candied orange. Finishes smooth and broad, with lingering spiciness and a hint of allspice.- Stephen Tanzer (05/2011)
