M. Chapoutier 2016 La Combe Pilate

La Combe Pilate (pronounced “La kohm pe-lot”) is 100% Viognier from a hillside vineyard on Michel Chapoutier’s property where Michel pushes the boundaries on the biodynamic concept with his experimental range called “The Alchemy Wines”. The symbol on La Combe Pilate’s label is the alchemic symbol for spirit and is inked to Chapoutier’s biodynamic philosophy – to respect and transform the raw material into a high quality product while showcasing the spirit of the land. The Collines Rhodaniennes IGP is characterized by the hills and valleys that surround the Rhone River. With the Massif Central lying to the west and the embryonic foothills of the Alps to the east, the Rhone River carves its way through south-eastern France to the Mediterranean Sea.

Pale gold with aniseed-colored highlights. Delicate floral notes with peach, citrus and flinty minerals. Very fresh on the entry, good balance with a savory finish that brings out the rustic and vibrant mineral overtones.


Jeb Dunnuck - 92 Points
"Made from 100% Viognier, the 2016 IGP Collines Rhodaniennes La Combe Pilate is a ripe, unctuous beauty that boasts a huge nose of ripe peach, orange blossom, and honeysuckle. Rich, medium to full-bodied and textured, it's a mini (maybe not so mini) Condrieu."

Wine Spectator - 91 Points
"This has lots of anise, peach, apricot and green plum flavors bouncing through, with fresh acidity and a fennel streak lending freshness. Drink now."

Philosophy

Aaron is microscopic wine producer located in Paso Robles, on California's Central Coast. created in 2002 as the brainchild of winemaker and Central Coast native Aaron Jackson, the simple goal is to produce stellar petite Sirah from superior Paso Robles vineyards. being trendy or making wine for the masses is the least of our concern; we're all about pursuing passion. At Aaron, we live and breathe by our motto: "Life should be outrageous. Go Big or go home." The wines we craft reflect the knowledge we've gained for everything and everyone in our lives, as well as our desire to think outside the box and ignore boundaries. We dig in the dirt, talk to the vines, and make wine on the edge. In essence, we always go Big.
