The 5th Consecutive Wine Spectator 95 for Beaux Freres!
Beaux Freres continues their remarkable track record of ratings with the newly minted, fifth consecutive 95 point rating from Wine Spectator for the 2017 Beaux Freres Vineyard Pinot noir. That accomplishment sets Beaux Freres in a league of their own; no other Oregon winery has the consistent praise and frankly, you'd have trouble finding too many other Pinot noir producers in the world with this type of sustained excellence.
It's our job, with the 2017 release and every release, to cut through the pomp of ratings and to provide the straight talk. And it goes like this: Beaux Freres Vineyard Pinot noir is one of our favorite wines every vintage and one of the most age-worthy Willamette Valley Pinots (with an exclamation point like Damian Lillard's dagger of a three-pointer last night!) The 2017 is a truly spectacular wine as we've now experienced twice.
And do not miss the return of Belles Soeurs Pinot noir, back after more than a decade.
$85.45 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($94.95 regular)
95 points Wine Spectator Insider, Hot Wine:"Combines structure with verve, offering richly expressive raspberry, violet and orange peel flavors that take on polish and complexity toward well buffed tannins."
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. Today was our second tasting of this wine, with the same impression each time. - Marcus
94 points Wine Spectator Insider:"Impeccably polished and structured, with gracefully expressive cherry and blueberry flavors, laced with black tea, spice and orange peel notes, taking on richness toward refined tannins."
A blend of Beaux Freres family estates -- Beaux Freres Vineyard, Upper Terrace, and Sequitur -- this has a redder personality than the BFV with delightful spice accents and a similar effortless weight and ultra-silky, seamless texture. - Marcus
