2010 Peter Michael 'Ma Danseuse' Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast, USA
$449.99 USD $499.99 USD
Pure perfection, the amazing 2010 Pinot Noir Ma Danseuse is one of the greatest Pinots I have ever tasted … anywhere. There are only 140 cases of this beauty, which was cropped at just over a ton of fruit per acre. It offers up notes of bouquet garni, roasted meats, black raspberries, black currants, strawberries and cherries. Deep and full-bodied with a flawless integration of acidity, tannin, wood and alcohol, this glorious Pinot Noir should prove to be legendary.
100 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Peter Michael’s steep Seaview Estate vineyards are on the reverse-slope of the first ridgeline in from the Pacific, with vine material from Burgundy. The plummy fruit, rich earth, rose and spice of this cuvée evoke the Côte d’Or: ample and authoritative. Lofty alcohol, but its vivid fruit tones avoid torrefaction.
93 Points Decanter
Stylish and elegant, with a sophisticated mix of plum, raspberry, spice and savory herb flavors. Very complete, delicate and balanced, with a long, soothing finish.
