Peter Michael 2016 "Belle Cote"

Located just next to La CarriíÂre, Belle CíÇte is a contrasting site with thicker soils and an eastern facing exposure. Sloped away from the afternoon sun and sheltered by a stand of trees on its western border, the vines are exceptionally slow to ripen. Typically this wine produces the broadest fattest fruit profile of our Chardonnays with dominant orange peel, tangerine and marmalade flavors accented with exotic lychee and the estate's signature wet stone mineral character. The name translates to "Beautiful Slope."
