Maison Roy et Fils 2015 Incline Pinot Noir Willamette Valley


The Dundee Hills Incline represents the winery's barrel selection of the “crème de la crème” of the 2015 vintage. Aromatically this wine shows bright pomegranate, red cherry, rose and iron. The palate is generous and full, showing ripe red fruit and silky tannins. The wine has ample concentration and bright acidity, which will allow aging for 10+ years.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 93 Points
"The 2015 Incline Pinot Noir, which is from the La Colina Vineyard in Dundee Hills, exudes greater purity on the bouquet than the 2014, touches of darker fruit intermixed with the red, blackberry and bilberry here, almost pastille-like. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp acidity, and there is good precision here, more purity on the finish compared to the 2014. This delivers fine Pinoté, much more than previous vintages, and it should age with style over the next decade."

Wine Spectator - 93 Points
"Note that the winery, the project of second generation Beaux Frères founders Jared Etzel and Marc-André Roy, makes a Petite Incline as well as two Incline Pinots from different AVAs. This dark, dense wine, packed with deep black fruit flavors, perfectly captures the classic signature of the Dundee Hills AVA. Subtle notes of iron ore, coffee grounds, tar and tobacco add complexity and length. Editor's Choice."

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.
