Winemaker Notes

A very intense and expressive nose of brioche, mineral, jasmine, candied orange, lemon oil, yellow peach and green gage interacts gracefully with vanilla, caramel and toasted hazelnut, meringue and subtle white truffle to form a multi-layered and intense bouquet. Very complex, creamy, ample texture of "gras" and balanced with a lingering perfumed and mineral finish. The 2013 Cuvee Indigene vintage will continue to express its potential for three decades, much like its Burgundian cousins from Corton-Charlemagne.

Critical Acclaim

RP 100
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The creamy, flamboyant 2012 Chardonnay Cuvee Indigene (a whopping 563 cases) tastes like a magnificent Batard-Montrachet from the glory days of Michel Niellon during the decades of the eighties and early nineties. Abundant notes of tropical fruits, citrus oil, orange blossom and hazelnuts are found in this full-bodied, deep, sexy Chardonnay. This compelling effort represents a beautiful synthesis between a French grand cru Burgundy and a full-throttle California Chardonnay. Enjoy it over the next decade.
Range: 98-100 Points
WS 93
Wine Spectator
This is full and rich-tasting, offering scents of lemon and unleashing a mix of tropical fruit, fig and honeydew flavors. A touch raw and oaky on the finish. Drink now through 2020.

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.
