Source International Wine Cellar
Issue Issue 162

Green-tinged yellow. Pungent aromas of lime, candied ginger, white flowers and quinine. Musky, sexy and linear on the palate, offering fresh pineapple, spice and vanilla flavors and a touch of chalky minerality. Deep, chewy, focused chardonnay with excellent finishing cut and persistent spiciness.

Drink Dates 2013-2020

Peter Michael's 2010 Chardonnay La Carriere is an intense, focused wine. Lemon oil, butter, vanillin, nectarine and spices all flesh out in the glass. Once again, the Carriere is distinguished by its underlying stoniness and minerality. Stylistically, the 2010 is creamy, textured and very nicely balanced throughout. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020.

Drink Dates 2013-2020

A creamy Chardonnay, displaying intense, complex flavors of rich hazelnut, fig, melon and smoky oak, this is full-blown and'as of now'rustic and chewy. Give this some time, the texture should soften.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
