Peter Michael “Ma Belle-Fille” Chardonnay 2017

$124.50

No further discounts applySir Peter’s Chardonnay Ma Belle-Fille is on a very short list of the best white wines in America. Naturally, it’s also one of the hardest to get.

The single vineyard, Ma Belle-Fille is a steep parcel on the Peter Michael estate precariously positioned above the fog line approximately 1700 feet above sea level. The mountain slope exceeds 40% grade in some spots. The vines work hard here and yield very little wine but what is coaxed from these tiny grapes is some of most compelling Chardonnays in the world.

The 2017 is spectacularly intense wine. The nose is exotic, with a great mingling of guava, brioche and honeysuckle. The wine is rich, with flavors of pear, citrus rind, and honey, accented by a fresh, oyster-shell minerality that keeps this wine dancing on the palate in a finish that lasts a mile long.

Chardonnay Ma Belle-Fille 2017 will be delicious this Saturday night and every other for the next 10-15 years.

Expert Reviews

97-99 pts – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“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!”
