Located adjacent to Belle Côte and Ma Belle-Fille, Mon Plaisir is planted to the famed Old Wente clonal selection. This vineyard enjoys a combination of thicker soils similar to those found in Belle Côte with the full sun exposure of La Carrière or Ma Belle-Fille. These conditions produce low yields and enhance the extracted perfume that makes Mon Plaisir a pure classic style. The name translates to "My Pleasure."
Under the direction of winemaker Nicolas Morlet, all Peter Michael wines are made using a non-interventionist, neo-classical approach. This relies on traditional, hands-on winemaking methods blended with the best of modern technology. With few exceptions, the wines are not fined or filtered. Traditional winemaking techniques such as French oak aging, a weekly “bâtonnage” (stirring while in barrel) and native fermentations are supplemented by new traditions like the hand sorting system we designed to ensure that only perfect berries make it into the wine press.
