2010 Peter Michael "La Carrière" Knights Valley Chardonnay

SKU #1089755 93 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Pungent aromas of lime, candied ginger, white flowers and quinine. Musky, sexy and linear on the palate, offering fresh pineapple, spice and vanilla flavors and a touch of chalky minerality. Deep, chewy, focused Chardonnay with excellent finishing cut and persistent spiciness. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2012)

92 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Bursting with honeysuckle, lemon oil, white peach and wet stone characteristics, this full-bodied, rich white possesses great acidity as well as a more backward, austere character than the other two vintages. Something I have noticed with a number of the 2010 Chardonnays is that they have a structural component that should make them very long-lived. This beauty reveals plenty of concentration, so enjoy it over the next decade. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2013)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Peter Michael's 2010 Chardonnay La Carriere is an intense, focused wine. Lemon oil, butter, vanillin, nectarine and spices all flesh out in the glass. Once again, the Carriere is distinguished by is underlying stoniness and minerality. Stylistically, the 2010 is creamy, textured and very nicely balanced throughout. (AG) Inner quote mark (7/2013)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A creamy Chardonnay, displaying intense, complex flavors of rich hazelnut, fig, melon and smoky oak, this is full-blown and—as of now—rustic and chewy. Give this some time, the texture should soften. (JL) Inner quote mark (7/2012)
