Big news, Oregon Pinot fans:Beaux Freresjust nabbed athird consecutive 95 pointrating yesterday from Wine Spectator Insider for their 2016 Beaux Freres Vineyard! Not to be outdone, Beaux Freres's Willamette Valley 2016 received itshighest score ever,94!!
The new reviews validate what we've been saying for months: our 2016 vintage is for real! I was barrel tasting in the Valley yesterday at another of our favorite wineries and I can further confirm our excitement for the next round of '16s. Beaux Freres Beaux Freres Vineyard Pinot noir 2016
$85.45 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($94.95 regular)
95 points Wine Spectator, Hot Wine:"Remarkably and seamlessly complex, with a polished and refined core wrapped in silky raspberry and blueberry flavors, accented by savory spice and orange zest hints. The long finish builds toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2025."
Our notes: Another thoroughly outstanding BFV, the '16 shines from moment one, displaying exuberance and knockout fruit. Graceful and, like the note above, utterly seamless, this will impress you should you decide to open it now and based on two-plus decades of Beaux Freres Pinot noir I've tasted, will have a much longer cellar life than 2025. - Marcus
$53.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($59.95 regular)
94 points Wine Spectator:"Seamlessly complex and silky, with vivid raspberry and blueberry flavors accented by black tea and savory spice notes that dance elegantly toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2024."
Our notes:As mentioned above, the highest rated Beaux Freres Willamette Valley bottling in the winery's history! Explosively aromatic, with layers of fruit to spare, it's difficult to imagine a more attractive young Beaux Freres Pinot noir. - Marcus
We're looking forward to helping you with an order. Thanks for your support!
