2019 Rocheux Pinot Noir
Crafted from the rocky Western slope of our estate vineyard, the 2019 Le Cadeau Rocheux Pinot Noir is a beautiful expression of the Pommard and Dijon 777 clones originally planted in 1999. The Rocheux blocks receive the heat of the sunset balanced with a crisp cool night breeze, resulting in rich mineral-driven fruit that maintains perfect acidity.
Awarded 93 points by Vinous: "Mineral-accented raspberry and cherry aromas are complemented by building floral, baking spice and cola nuances. Juicy and tightly wound on entry, offering cherry and red fruit flavors that deepen and ripen through the back half. Dusty tannins lend grip to a long, smoky, penetrating finish that echoes the mineral and floral notes."
