This single clone wine was handled in a very straightforward manner, with a traditional Burgundian-style open top fermentation and gentle punch-downs to the cap to extract flavor. With time in the glass, the tannins of this youthful wine become rounder and suppler as they uncoil, the 777 clone's hallmark texture, ripe and juicy, beautifully expressed.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
On the nose, red currants and ripe strawberry give way to ripe black cherry. Unfined and unfiltered, focused fruit and spice notes interlayer with savory Herbes de Provence, tea leaves, and turned earth. With time in the glass, the tannins of this youthful wine become rounder and suppler as they uncoil, the 777 clone's hallmark texture, ripe and juicy, beautifully expressed.
Vineyard Notes
This single clone wine was handled in a very straightforward manner, with a traditional Burgundian-style open top fermentation and gentle punch-downs to the cap to extract flavor.
Production Notes
√Člevage commenced with only the free run wine going to barrel. Of the 24 barrels selected for the final blend, nine were new (37.5%) featuring the Cadus cooperage along with some barrels from Francois-Fr√®res and Mercurey. The individual barrels were selected for flavor and restraint to complement the texture of this unique Pinot Noir without overshadowing it with too much barrel influence.
