2017 Diversité Pinot Noir
Fruit for the 2017 Le Cadeau Pinot Noir primarily comes from mixed-clone blocks at the north end of our estate vineyard. The diversity of clones creates a complex and balanced Pinot noir that drinks beautifully now and will age gracefully for years to come.
Awarded 94 points by James Suckling: "Attractive, earthy sweetness that is dressed in fragrant baking spices, across a core of ripe red cherries. The palate is fluid, sleek and long with a superbly defined tannin texture. Concentrated fruit abounds. This has great length and detail. Try from 2022."
Awarded 91 points by Wine Spectator: "Tightly focused, with precise raspberry, orange peel and smoky forest floor accents that build tension toward broad-shouldered tannins. Drink now through 2026."
