Remarkably and seamlessly complex, with a polished and refined core wrapped in silky raspberry and blueberry flavors, accented by savory spice and orange zest hints. The long finish builds toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2025.

Beaux Frères Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018

December 2020

#9 - Top 100 Wines of 2020

Wine Spectator

Beaux Frères has helped set the standard for modern Pinot Noir in Oregon since its founding in the late 1980s, part of the second generation of Willamette Valley wineries. Founder Mike Etzel is not hands-on in the cellar these days, but son Mike D. Etzel and his team haven’t lost a beat. This 2018 is the wine of the vintage to date, from a year that had its challenges. The 24-acre Beaux Frères Vineyard is planted to a mixture of Pommard, Wädenswil and newer Dijon clones on a steep south-facing slope on Ribbon Ridge, a sweet spot in the Chehalem Mountains AVA.

A touch of vanilla-laced pastry cream sweetness accents this fresh and focused Champagne, with a fine mousse. This is wellbalanced by crunchy acidity and flavors of lemon peel, green pear and spring blossom.
