Peter Michael Cuvee Indigene 2014Winemaker Notes : An intense and expressive nose of brioche, mineral, peach blossom, candied orange, mangosteen, lemon oil, yellow peach and dried apricot. Notes of vanilla, toasted hazelnut, meringue and subtle white truffle interact to complete a multi-layered and very intense bouquet. In the mouth, the texture is ample and creamy, displaying ample “gras” and balanced with a lingering mineral finish.

M. Chapoutier Les Vignes de Bila-Haut Cotes du Roussillon Blanc 2016Tasting Note: Medium-intensity lemon in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of lemon and lime citrus zest, green apple, star fruit and honeysuckle. On the palate the dry, medium-bodied white blend is bright with some mid-palate complexity giving way to flavors suggested on the nose ultimately completing with a medium, citrus-zest-wrapped finish. There is balance between the fruit and medium acidity that is refreshing.

Peter Michael La Carrière Estate Chardonnay 2013Winemaker Notes: Terroir-driven minerality remains the hallmark of this vineyard, with aromas of bakery, toasted almond, dry honey, white vine rose, jasmine, hazelnut and William pear. Accents of mandarin orange, honey and vanilla complete the elegant bouquet. Wonderfully concentrated and elegant on the palate, the wine is sculpted, rich, intense and creamy. Notes of citrus oil, white peach and lemon meringue frame the minerality. The minerality and bright acidity will allow it to age well for two decades, much like its Burgundian cousins from Puligny-Montrachet.
