Peter Michael Belle Cote Chardonnay Magnum 2016
Peter Michael Winery was established in 1983 and has garnered a significant reputation for its production of world-class terroir-driven Chardonnay. The grapes for Belle Côte are grown at in the Knights Valley AVA at 1,700 and 1,800ft above sea level. This extra elevation in combination with a more sheltered site results in slower ripening and a broader, fatter style of Chardonnay. The 2016 is brilliantly intense and aromatic, offering notes of guava, pineapple, toasted nuts, ginger and cinnamon. Voluptuous and full-bodied, it has delicious satiny texture and a wonderfully long finish.
