The 2020 Peter Michael Winery Belle Côte Estate Chardonnay (bel kote), French for “beautiful slope”, was named by Sir Peter after the famous ski run in Courchevel, France. This wine is produced from the oldest of four Peter Michael estate Chardonnay vineyards. Belle Côte exemplifies how consistently these mountain vineyard sites produce exceptionally high quality Chardonnay.
Winemaker Tasting Notes:
Intense aromas of orange blossom, nectarine, peach, and rose petals. The rich, beautifully creamy entry with mouthfeel is followed by a broad, powerful yet balanced mid-palate and an extraordinarily long finish. Hints of toasted almond and pain d’épices embrace an expressive core of marmalade, custard, and nougat. A wonderfully balanced wine.
Blend: 100% Estate Chardonnay
Aged 12 months in 100% French oak barrels from select artisan coopers
