Peter Michael Ma Belle Fille Chardonnay 2016
Spectacular and intense, the 2016 Ma Belle-Fille boasts aromas of ripe peach, tangerine blossom, brioche-like pastry elements, golden apple and nectarine, accented with oyster shell minerality. Generous in the mouth, rich and concentrated, the wine displays flavors of Williams pear, honey, dried almond, chamomile, and orange rind with notes of gingerbread and a touch of exotic pineapple. In the mouth, the wine is tactile and gourmand with extreme purity. Layered and seductive, the finish is very long. The wine will age gracefully for a decade or more.
