Beaux Freres Belles Soeurs Pinot Noir 2021
|United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley
The 2021 Pinot Noir The Belles Soeurs opens from bright orange peel to a deeper core of pomegranate, raspberry, dried earth and botanicals, really blossoming as it spends time in the glass and from day to day after the bottle is opened. The medium-bodied palate balances concentrated, floral flavors, chalky tannins and juicy acidity, and it offers a long, spicy finish with a fan of amaro-like spices. This is fresh and easy to drink without sacrificing any complexity!
The 2021 Pinot Noir The Belles Soeurs wafts up with a dramatic blend of violets, lavender, hints of underbrush and dusty dried strawberries. This is graceful and finessed with pretty red and blue fruit depths lifted by cooling acidity. Spicy and sleek, the 2021 tapers off lightly tannic with a pleasantly bitter tinge, leaving slowly fading hints of licorice. Belles Soeurs is the understated beauty of this range and intended to be the more approachable Pinot in the portfolio; it succeeds in every way imaginable.
Spirited and precise, with expressive raspberry, garrigue and hibiscus tea tones that build richness and multilayered flavors toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2032. 510 cases made.
