Le Pré du Col Vineyard: A Bergström Wines Estate
Planted 2006 * Ribbon Ridge AVA * Elevation: 400ft
The first Ribbon Ridge AVA estate that we were honored to add to our portfolio. This magnificent 16-acre marine-sedimentary shallow sandy soil terroir is owned by the Hill family and farmed by Bergström Wines in partnership since its inception. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from this amazing site are known for their depth of spice, rare woods, incense and oceanic salinity aromatics and for their rich textural layers of fruited spice and earthy minerality. These are seriously age-worthy wines. Learn more about the Le Pré du Col Vineyard
Josh Bergström's Notes
Light red cherry in color, the 2018 Le Pré du Col Pinot Noir has effusive aromas of cherry and plum fruits, citrus oils, Chinese Five Spice, bouillon, meaty mushrooms, incense, and dark chocolate. The wine is elegantly framed with silky tannins, soft, plush plum and dark-berried fruit, spice flavors, and a succulent vein of juicy acidity on the finish. The use of no new oak barrels in 2018 allows this great site to shine with its natural spice and fruit flavors. This wine is approachable now for early enjoyment but should age well for the next decade or more. Drink 2022-2032+. Alcohol: 13.1%
