Peter Michael Belle Cote Chardonnay 2021

Critical Acclaim: 97 pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes: Intense orange blossom, lemon custard, and jasmine burst from the glass of the 2021 ‘Belle Côte’.  This highly aromatic bouquet continues with rose petals and lychee underlain by orange marmalade bass notes.  The rich entry and dense mid-palate show the depth created by our oldest Chardonnay vines.  Hints of orange peel, pastry, and lemon curd lead to a long, polished finish.  Belle Côte can be enjoyed in its exuberant youth or after decades of cellaring.

"The 2021 Chardonnay Belle Côte is bursting with gregarious scents of candied peaches and apricot, roasted almonds, matchstick, spring honey and glossy yet integrated new oak spices. The palate is silky and bright despite its deep core of ripe, youthfully coiled fruit, and it has a long, flinty finish. It unfolds and changes with time in the glass, and with all that concentration and freshness it's a great candidate for extended cellaring. 2,159 cases were made."- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
