It's Back! Beaux Freres Les Cousins 2018

Beaux Freres Les Cousins Pinot noir aka "Baby Beaux Freres" always presents a conundrum: we love selling it to the lucky few but we don't love disappointing those who don't click in time. Good news: it's back, which means we've been granted another batch. The first one sold out in minutes better get a move on! Don't forget to add some of Beaux Freres Vineyard '17, while you're at it.

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, and one of ours!

95 points Wine Spectator, Highly Recommended: "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.
