'There's nothing that the Peter Michael winery does that is not admirable. Consider that they work with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon as well as Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, they produce world-class wines from all of these varietals, and they do it from Knight's Valley and the Sonoma Coast. Of course, they have had some fabulous winemakers pass through, including the likes of Helen Turley and Mark Aubert, Luc Morlet and now his brother, Nicolas Morlet. Nevertheless, much of the credit has to go to Sir Peter Michael, the owner, who gives these people carte blanche, and expects their very best.' Robert M. Parker Jr.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Chardonnay Ma Belle Fille has a compelling salted nuts and honeyed cake nose with a core of orange peel, pink grapefruit and rising bread dough. Medium-bodied, elegant and with great intensity, it has a wonderful yeasty/toasty character coupled with the gregarious citrus notes, finishing long and layered. To be bottled in February 2018; 1,700 cases are expected.

Wine SpectatorFresh, ripe citrus, honeydew, green apple and lemony notes fold together, held back by a rawness in texture that should ease with time. Drink now through 2023. 1,635 cases made.
