Outer quote mark This is a big and dense La Carriere with cooked-pear and apple character, as well as hints of lemon rind and creme brulee. Full-bodied, layered and very flavorful. Rich yet energetic. Inner quote mark (2/2018)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2015 Chardonnay la Carriere opens with a seriously intense nose of ripe peaches, lemon curd and grapefruit peel with hints of nutmeg, acacia honey, orange blossoms and buttered toast. Medium-bodied, very fine, fresh and elegant, it has a lively backbone lifting the citrus and savory flavors, finishing long and minerally. (LPB) Inner quote mark (10/2017)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2015 Chardonnay La Carrière is soft, open knit and inviting, with soft contours and lovely density in the mid-weight style that is typical of the 2015 and 2016 Chardonnays at Peter Michael. Bright saline notes extend the mid palate and finish in this very pretty and expressive wine. (AG) Inner quote mark (7/2018)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Offers a notable toasty, smoky oak presence, with the core fruit underneath marked by rich, spicy citrus, fig, apricot and green apple notes. (JL) Inner quote mark (11/2017)
