Pinot Noir

At our core we are a Pinot Noir house. Intuitive, modern winemaking affords rare generosity of character and approachability, while gilded terroir offers stark minerality, filigree acid and balance. From Savigny-lès-Beaune to Eola-Amity Hills, these Pinots are candid in their simplicity, avoiding excesses to speak of their origins with clarity. Interweaving numerous prestigious sites, often just a handful of rows, and employing whole berry ferments to extract color and depth without excessive phenolics, our winemakers are able to craft pure, unequivocal, and most importantly delicious Pinot Noir.
