Beaux Freres Les Cousins 2018

A big, juicy bowlful of fruit, the kind of deliciousness that you can expect from Beaux Freres and from the 2018 vintage. Dark red fruits and undertones of earth, spice, and floral elements combine for a dynamite Cousins. According to founder Mike Etzel, the Beaux Freres cellar was filled with an amazing array of Pinot noir expressions from the 2018 vintage.

One of Wine Spectator's top picks for 2017 Pinot noir!

95 points Wine Spectator, Highly Recommended: "Combines structure with verve, offering richly expressive raspberry, violet and orange peel flavors that take on polish and complexity toward well buffed tannins. Drink now through 2028."

Us: A gorgeous vintage of Beaux Freres Vineyard, with a seamlessness I don't ever recall tasting in this wine, in any vintage. What that means: from start to finish, the wine moves so effortlessly, like floating without gravity from one billowy Pinot cloud to another. Wonderfully pretty, fresh and vibrant, a characteristic of 2017, with understated power and energy. We've tasted this six unique times, with the same impression each time.

94 points Wine Spectator: "Harmonious yet dynamic, with fervent violet and raspberry notes that pick up orange peel and black tea accents along the way to a polished, structured finish. Best from 2021 through 2028."

In a reprise performance, this radiant gem displays the cherished essence of our family farmed sites. Impressions of pomegranate, pie cherry, tropical flowers and sage play stealthily amid electric acidity and spring-loaded tannins. From its brilliant hue, and onward toward a shining symphonic bouquet and mesmerizing, ethereal texture; this is the purity of Pinot Noir we treasure.. - the winery
