96 points Decanter, The Top-Scoring Oregon Pinot: An impressive wine from a dry-farmed, certified organic 1.8ha vineyard, first planted in 1986. Superbly elegant violet-tinged cherry fruit with a hint of spice, developing gracefully to take on a smoky subtlety and supple depth, showing hints of freshly turned earth. The texture is seductively silky and delicate, yet there is rewarding density and length. Drinking Window 2021 - 2030
Us: Le Puits Sec 2017 is beautiful. Wonderfully cool in it's aromatic profile, like the best vintages of Le Puits Sec it's a wine I'd open just to smell. Effusively red in fruit, woven with sweet notes of the sun warming a Douglas fir tree, with a pinch of rosemary blossoms. The flavor and the feel are equally beguiling. I've been thinking of how to capture the texture: weightless and silky, for sure, yet with microscopically-fine molecules of flavor that burst and multiply through the finish. If, like me, you enjoy drinking the bottled energy that is young Pinot noir, then I say open with abandon, enjoy over two to three days. Like the best vintages of LPS, there will be plenty in my cellar because I'm certain of the magic that'll build with time.
