2010 Peter Michael "Cuvée Indigène" Knights Valley Chardonnay (bin soiled, scuffed labels)

SKU #1440360 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark There are 235 cases of the 2010 Chardonnay Cuvee Indigene, which was fermented with indigenous yeasts and produced from the Old Wente clone of Chardonnay. The harvest occurred in early to mid-October. This wine possesses great balance, and, along with the limited cuvee of Point Rouge, is the finest of Peter Michael’s 2010 Chardonnays. Copious notes of wet rock, buttered citrus, creme brulee, brioche, pineapple and apricot are found in this full-bodied, seriously endowed Chardonnay. *Best of 2013* (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2013)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark In 2010, the Chardonnay Cuvee Indigene stands out for its exotic bouquet. Passion fruit, lychee, nectarine, wild flowers and peaches are some of many notes that come alive in the glass. Surprisingly weightless for a Peter Michael Chardonnay, the Cuvee Indigene impresses for its balance and superb sense of proportion. In 2010 the Cuvee Indigene is a model of purity and elegance. Even better, it should enjoy a broad window of drinkability. (AG) Inner quote mark (7/2013)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Light gold. Pungent, assertively perfumed aromas of poached pear, dried flowers, vanilla bean and iodine, with a smoky topnote. Lush, palate-staining orchard fruit flavors show outstanding depth and intensity, picking up spiciness with aeration. Refuses to let up on the finish, leaving vibrant mineral and floral notes behind. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2012)
