This is it: The culmination of our decades-long love affair with Pinot Noir. When our search for the perfect climate and sites to cultivate the ultimate Pinot Noir brought us to the Russian River Valley in 2007, "Les Pommiers" was our proud result. From the very first vintage, "Les Pommiers" combined expert craftsmanship with the pure, vibrant fruit of our finest Pinot Noir vineyards. It was and is a celebration of the very best in Russian River Valley winemaking.
At once elegant and intense, "Les Pommiers" is the consummate blend of fruit from our vineyards located primarily in the Green Valley and upper Middle Reach areas of the Russian River Valley AVA. The result is a stylish, intricately layered Pinot Noir that brings lush flavors, silky textures and unparalleled quality to your table.
EnRoute "Les Pommiers" leads with luscious aromas of red cherry, raspberry, and star jasmine, with a refreshing minerality. The wine plays on the palate in a silky-smooth manner with flavors that complement its aromatics, calling to mind bright red fruit, rose petal and a touch of forest floor. The experience culminates in a bright, mouth-watering finish, inviting another sip.
By its nature, "Les Pommiers" is a richly textured Pinot Noir that brings with each sip the essence of fruits grown across the valley. Our northernmost vineyards mature quickly in the warm summer, with the cooler Green Valley sites ripening more slowly. In every vintage, we harvest each vineyard, block and cluster when it reaches pitch perfect maturity, so that our "Les Pommiers" consistently possesses mouthwatering acidity, vibrant red and black fruit flavors and graceful textures. And yet, because no two growing seasons are alike, each vintage also offers an adventure for the palate.SHOP NOW
