Winemaker Notes

Offering elegance, complexity, richness and long ability to age, the 2012 Clos du Ciel is an exceptional wine. It has a red-ruby color with a purple aristocratic hue. The nose is filled with aromas of raspberry liqueur, black cherry, wild strawberry, black truffle, earthy and leather notes. Balanced and rich in the mouth, the notes of delicate red forest fruits and violet scents are stunning with earthy and gamey components, which complete the intense mouth feel. The texture of Clos du Ciel is sensual, silky and stylish with an impressive length. It will require a couple of years of cellaring to develop its bouquet and remarkable potential.

Critical Acclaim

RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Pinot Noir Clos de Ciel was cropped at a rather high 3+ tons of fruit per acre and totaled 670 cases because of such a large crop. It offers plenty of blue and red fruits intermixed with notes of spring flowers, full body, and a layered mouthfeel. This should turn out to be a beauty, but like most of the 2012s I tasted with Luc and Nick Morlet, it is so primary and grapy, it is hard to see the nuances that are expressed in the other vintages. It should drink well for 10+ years.
Range: 93-95+
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Marked by firm, gripping tannins and a core of savory herb, cola-laced dried berry, black tea and truffle flavors that fan out on the finish, this picks up a mocha note while remaining dry and savory. Drink now through 2022.

Peter Michael, California
Peter Michael Winery Image
In 1982 Sir Peter and Lady Margaret Michael built the Peter Michael Winery on a square mile of rocky volcanic ridges that form the western face of Mount St. Helena in Knights Valley, Sonoma County, California. The estate vineyards rest on steep hillsides ranging in elevation from 1100 to nearly 2000 feet. Of the nearly 600 estate acres, only about 20% are planted to grapes. Peter Michael Winery is best known for single-vineyard and estate grown Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and a Cabernet Sauvignon cuvee of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The Peter Michael Winery remains true to its commitment to growing classic grape varieties in small mountain vineyards in order to produce great wines using classical winemaking techniques. Given this covenant to the product, only a limited quantity will ever be available.
