Peter Michael, Clos du Ciel, Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast, 2010 Double Magnum

Sale price£1,876.00


The fruit for Clos du Ciel is grown in the southernmost section of the vineyard, which offers the greatest sun exposure and the least marine influence. The slight increase in temperature brings forward a more masculine structure in this wine, which is named for the vineyard’s densely forested perimeter and its sublime and lofty view.

100 Points. "The perfect 2010 Pinot Noir Clos de Ciel (330 cases) is a dead-ringer for the 1990 DRC La Tache. This could be a game-changing Pinot Noir that sets the wine world upside down given its spectacular quality. It boasts a dense ruby/plum/purple color as well as a big, sweet bouquet of licorice, spring flowers, black currants, black cherries, forest floor and raspberries. Deep and full with a flawless attack, mid-section and finish, it builds incrementally on the palate, then lingers for 40-45 seconds on the finish. It reveals an ethereal lightness despite its intensity of flavor. This mind-boggling wine will keep for 10-15 years." Robert M Parker, Jr
