"Belle Cote" Knights Valley
The first Estate Chardonnay vineyard planted by Peter Michael in 1990. The winery writes, "Typically this wine produces the broadest fattest fruit profile of our Chardonnays with dominant orange peel, tangerine and marmalade flavors accented with exotic lychee and the estate's signature wet stone mineral character. The name translates to 'Beautiful Slope.'"
Parker, February 2011: "The fresh, lively 2009 Chardonnay Belle Cote (2,850 cases; 15.2% alcohol) exhibits abundant floral and tropical fruit blossom notes intermixed with notions of poached pear, honeysuckle, oak and earth. The complex aromatics are followed by a medium-bodied, elegant, fresh, lively white that should keep for 6-8 years."
