The Theme for 2018: The Best Ever Brick House Les Dijonnais Pinot
We don't want you to get tired of hearing this; we want you to take note: the 2018 Willamette Valley Pinots are spectacular. There's a theme developing among the top wines. First it was Cameron's Abbey Ridge '18 (best ever), then Evesham's Cuvee J '18 (best ever) and now, Brick House Les Dijonnais 2018. Care to guess where it fits with previous vintages?
We've tasted it and are convinced: Brick House Les Dijonnais '18 is the best vintage we've tasted. For years we've deemed it an essential part of any Willamette Valley Pinot collection and yet the 2018 kicks that up a notch. If you're on the fence still, Wine Spectator Highly Recommends it too. Now you know what to do: make way for Les Dijonnais!

Us: Sublime magic. It's gorgeous–among the best 2018 Pinots I've tasted. The aromas are so alive they jump from the glass; its a scent you allow to take over your brain. Commanding in an understated way, it makes you listen because of its quiet perfection. Elegantly composed of the most attractive array of red berries, wrapped in a tapestry of floral and mineral silken threads. It's captivating on day one, even better on day two and three. An essential Pinot noir in any Oregon collection.
94 points Wine Spectator, Highly Recommended: "Ethereal and expressively floral, with multilayered raspberry, rose petal and cherry blossom flavors, plus orange peel accents that build richness toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2028."

Us: A standout among Oregon Chards at its original price; for under $30, it's a can't-miss for our Chardonnay fans. Fantastic!
93 point Vinous:"A highly perfumed, mineral-tinged bouquet evokes fresh citrus and orchard fruits, saffron, buttered toast and white flowers, and a hint of fennel comes up with air. Shows sharp delineation to the vibrant tangerine, Anjou pear, sweet butter and anise flavors, which tighten up slowly on the back half. Powerful yet graceful and fine-grained, displaying superb focus and back-end lift on an impressively long finish that features resonating floral and mineral flourishes."
