This is a very special opportunity to explore four unique Pinot Noir clonal cuvees produced from a single-estate vineyard on Chehalem Mountain in Oregon's beautiful Willamette Valley. Each case comes with three bottles of each of four clonal cuvees, Blends, A, B, C and D (indicated on the labels). Bottled 9/21.
Sublimely built, these Mountain Pinots are raised in mostly second-fill and neutral French oak to preserve the beautiful amalgam of fruit and terroir. Assembled by the winery and normally retailing for $65-85/bottle, these wines routinely score 91- to 94-points in Vinous and The Wine Spectator.
2019 de Negoce “No. 70 – C – Tank Sample” Pinot Noir Red, Chehalem Mountains, Willamette Valley, Oregon
Light to medium garnet in color, this tank sample smells of raspberry and herbs. In the mouth, raspberry and sour cherry flavors have fleecier more muscular tannins than this wine’s peers. Nice acidity and length. Score: between 8.5 and 9.
15% second fill French oak
85% neutral French oak
