2005 Peter Michael "Cuvée Indigène" Sonoma County Chardonnay (1.5L)

SKU #1118066 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2005 Chardonnay Cuvee Indigene is spectacular. Huge honeysuckle, nectarine, and citrus oil notes along with some lemon blossom, crushed rocks, and subtle smoke are all present in this full-bodied wine that is buttressed by sensational acidity. This is a gorgeous wine that should age for at least a decade. This 121-acre estate with 114 producing acres of vineyard all located in Knight’s Valley continues to be at the top of their game and I can’t recommend the wines highly enough. Inner quote mark (12/2007)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Yellow-gold. Intense smoke- and lees-influenced aromas of pear, quince and tangerine, with strong mineral and licorice accents. Powerful and broad on the palate, with ripe but focused pit fruit and citrus flavors, complicated by honeycomb and chamomile. One of the most soil-driven California chardonnays I've ever tasted, with outstanding focus and depth. Finishes on a deep, pungent note of licorice root. Inner quote mark (6/2007)

K&L Notes

From the Winery: "In 1982 Sir Peter Michael established the Peter Michael winery on a square mile of rocky volcanic ridges that form the western face of Mount St. Helena in Sonoma County. From the beginning, the wine growing philosophy was modeled on the French tradition infused with a few modern influences: One, the vineyard terroir would be the single most important feature. Two, the wines would be elegant rather than overstated. Three, there would be a hundred-year commitment to the development of a great estate. Given this commitment to the product, only a limited quantity will ever be made."
