Winemaker Notes

Despite the higher yields, this cuvee reveals a strong minerality along with huge notes of wet stones, white peaches, apricots, quince and marmalade. This full-bodied, opulent Chardonnay already flirts with perfection, and its aging in 40% new oak is completely concealed by the extravagant fruit of this vintage.

RP 97
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A strong effort, the 2012 Chardonnay Mon Plaisir (1,500 cases) exhibits notes of honeysuckle, lychee nuts, passion flowers, orange marmalade and white peaches. This full-bodied white possesses fabulous fruit intensity, stunning purity and a profound finish. Drink this beauty over the next decade.
WS 95
Wine Spectator
A truly exotic style, ultrarich and well-oaked, showing off toast and smoke notes. This is dense, with apricot, fig, crème brûlée and marmalade flavors. A truly exceptional wine that combines power with restraint.

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.

A small and picturesque valley separating Napa Valley on its south border and Alexander Valley to its north, Knights Valley excels in similar varieties as the two aforementioned appellations, namely red Bordeaux varieties and blends, as well as Sauvignon blanc. Originally established by Beringer Vineyards, today several outstanding producers claim acreage here. The circadian cooling effects of the nearby Pacific Ocean create a nighttime respite for vineyards during the hot growing season.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
