Beaux Freres 2017 Beaux Freres Vineyard Pinot Noir
Beaux Freres 2017 Beaux Freres Vineyard Pinot Noir

Beaux Freres 2017 Beaux Freres Vineyard Pinot Noir

Fresh and complex, pure and polished with high-note acidity elongating a mouthwatering finish: Here in its 27th iteration, The Beaux Freres Vineyard is wearing its heart on its sleeve. Awe-striking in its characteristic juicy cane berry and plum preserves, this classic rendition also shows dried violets and a crispness hearkening to loamy terrain. The quintessential poise, sophistication, and structure of this terroir-driven wine once again show promise for successful cellaring for 10+ years.

James Suckling - 96 Points
"There’s a real sense of depth and detail here with fresh cherries and blueberries, swathed in vanilla-dusted violets, fresh-cut roasting herbs and biscuit spices. The palate has a very plush and smoothly rendered feel with a long, smooth and seamless run of ripe blueberries and cherries. Concentrated and elegant pinot with a long, long finish. Drink across the next decade."

Wine Spectator - 95 Points
"Combines structure with verve, offering richly expressive raspberry, violet and orange peel flavors that take on polish and complexity toward well buffed tannins. Drink now through 2028."

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 92+ Points
"The medium ruby colored 2017 Pinot Noir The Beaux Frères Vineyard opens with aromas of cinnamon stick, citrus peel, desiccated roses, warm earth and dried leaves over a core of fresh cranberries, red currants and blackberries with hints of amaro and crushed raspberries. It’s medium-bodied with slowly blossoming fruits, gaining amplitude with those nuances of earth, spice and amaro, finely framed and wonderfully fresh with a long, nuanced finish. Give this another couple of years in bottle."

Beaux Freres Wines
Since our first vintage in 1991, the Beaux Frères 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 Frères 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 Frères 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 Frères to develop significant perfume, weight, and texture in the bottle.
