2015 Belle Pente Vineyard Pinot Noir

from 35.10

The 2015 growing season got off to an early start with bud break before the end of March (two weeks early) and flowering in early June. The warm growing season resulted in the earliest harvest ever for our estate vineyard, beginning on September 5th and wrapping up by the 19th (before we would even start in a “normal” year!).

As would be expected from a warm year, the 2015 wines offer plenty of rich, concentrated forward fruit flavors and aromas. What is a bit surprising though is the balance and underlying structure that supports the fruit. They are ripe wines with nerve and freshness, making them very complete and compelling packages.

The grapes come from 4 of our 8 blocks of Pinot nor, planted in 1998 and 1999. A little over half comes from blocks planted to the “old school” Oregon selections (30% Wadensvil and 22% Pommard) with the balance comprising two of the newer Dijon selections (37% 115 and 11% 114). This diversity of elevation, aspect, and selection (along with a high single digit dose of whole clusters) contributes nuance and complexity to make this one of the most intriguing renditions or our flagship estate Pinot to date!

Enjoy over the next 10 years with rich dishes featuring big birds or small mammals.
