Peter Michael Winery Chardonnay la Carriere 2007, 1.5L (WA96) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Peter Michael Winery Chardonnay la Carriere

1.5L

Vintage: 2007
Region: US
Appellation: Knights Valley, Sonoma County

WA96
Rated 96 points by the Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `Absolutely riveting with powerful citrus blossom, nectarine, lemon butter, and honeyed orange-like characteristics, the full-bodied as well as zesty, lively, mineral-laced 2007 Chardonnay La Carriere is impossible to resist.` -- Robert Parker in the Wine AdvocateAdditional Notes from the Wine Advocate: `Brothers Nicolas and Luc Morlet (the former the winemaker and the latter a consultant) told me that 2008 was one of the smallest crops they have encountered, largely because of the late spring frosts, and windy conditions during flowering. Yields were low, but the quality was among the highest they have ever seen for Chardonnay, with a level of concentration reminiscent of the 2002s. As I indicated in issue #180, Peter Michael`s 2007 Chardonnays are spectacular. Production is about 30% higher per cuvee than in 2008, and these are exquisite efforts with lots of uplift, minerality, zesty aromatics, and refreshing acids. This year I should have a chance to taste the estate plantings from the huge investments Sir Peter Michael has made in Pinot Noir vineyards on the Sonoma Coast. In the meantime, here are some interesting efforts from sites where they contract for fruit.`
