hecho a mano
The fruit in this particular wine was sourced from two of the winemaker’s favorite blocks, Pommard and 777, or ‘7G’. This particular block of Dijon clone 777 was originally planted as Pinot gris, and later Pinot Noir Clone 777 was grafted over the entire block. Hence why we call it ‘7G’. Both blocks of Pinot Noir were handpicked and gently destemmed and kept separately through the entire fermentation, barreling and aging process. After aging for 27 months in 66% New French Oak, many blending trials and precise barrel selection was done pre- bottling to arrive at this smooth yet textured Pinot noir.
