Rare new Chardonnay release from cult winery Peter Michael. Limited. 99 Points Robert Parker: "A barrel sample with fruit from Hudson, Calera and two types of Old Wente clones, the 2017 Chardonnay Ma Belle Fille has beautiful, sophisticated citrus notes of lemon curd, pink grapefruit and yuzu over a pear, peach and apple pie core with touches of exotic fruits, nutmeg, toasted almonds and talc. The palate is medium to full-bodied, with amazing vibrancy countered by a beautifully creamy texture and long, mineral-driven finish. This should age incredibly!... ...Peter Michael is an impeccably run, world-class winery and it is probably impossible to find a greater set of Chardonnays anywhere else in the world, with one exception – the seven cuvées of Chardonnay made by Mark Aubert, ironically, one of Peter Michael’s former winemakers!"
Not my favorite vintage of Ma Belle-Fille but still good in an off year.
