Since our first vintage in 1991, the Beaux Freres philosophy remains the same; to produce a world class Pinot Noir from small, well balanced yields and ripe, healthy fruit that represents the essence of our vineyard. In pursuit of these goals, the Beaux Freres Vineyard is planted with tightly spaced vines, and yields are kept to some of the lowest in our industry. The grapes are harvested when physiologically (rather than analytically) ripe. Our winemaking philosophy is one of minimal intervention with clean fermentations utilizing indigenous yeast. The wines are stored in French oak for 10 to 12 months adjusting the percentage of new oak to compliment the wine the vintage has given us. Beaux Freres is never racked until it is removed from barrel for bottling, which occurs without fining or filtration. These non manipulative, uncompromising methods guarantee a wine that is the most natural and authentic vineyard expression possible. Previous vintages demonstrate that these methods also allow our Beaux Freres to develop significant perfume, weight, and texture in the bottle.
TASTING NOTES: Wine Spectator 95 points- A dynamic wine, with beguiling rose petal and violet aromas, accented by dark plum and blueberry notes. The flavors are focused and structured, yet supple, with espresso and smoky spice details that gain traction toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2025. 1,120 cases made. TF.November/2017
