RATINGS

97-99The Wine Advocate

...beautiful, sophisticated citrus notes of lemon curd, pink grapefruit and yuzu over a pear, peach and apple pie core with touches of exotic fruits, nutmeg, toasted almonds and talc. The palate is medium to full-bodied, with amazing vibrancy countered by a beautifully creamy texture and long, mineral-driven finish. This should age incredibly!

95Vinous / IWC

...brings together so many of the elements that make the Peter Michael Chardonnays so distinctive. Bright aromatics and saline underpinnings give the Belle-Fille energy and drive. Citrus peel, dried flowers, chamomile, sage and mint add a distinctly savory quality to this broad, beautifully structured Chardonnay. The Belle-Fille seems to benefit from the diversity created through a mix of Calera, Hudson, Hyde and Montrachet clones.

90Wine Spectator

Juicy, filled with red peach and Fuji apple flavors that are backed by bright acidity. Tangerine and spice notes show on the finish.

TYPE
