2014 Single Barrel MonoClone Pinot Noir Set
Our Rare ONE-BARREL Release
TRIPTYCH OF MONOCLONE® PINOT NOIRS
From the Stellar 2014 Vintage
Single Vineyard, Single Clone, ONE barrel…Soliste
As our story goes, the name Soliste comes from the special single barrel the Burgundian vigneron reserves for friends and family. Our single barrel wines represent the promise and journey that is Soliste.
Each of these three wines epitomized why we love Pinot Noir. Of all the cépages, it is the most complex, exotic, cerebral, and enigmatic. And at times, perhaps showing its French roots, can be very frustrating and challenging. This is why we are both infatuated with and passionate about Pinot Noir, and why we care so deeply about our mission to craft the very best wines year after year.
From the first vintage, Soliste’s quest has always been (and will always remain) to craft extraordinary Pinot Noirs that will be part of the conversation of the great Burgundies that have been created by centuries of commitment from the Cistercian monks of Vougeot. At Soliste, we deeply believe that these traditions, discipline, and uncompromising methods are the foundation and structure that drive us to produce such wines. We also believe that it is best to let others, not us, talk about the wines of Soliste, especially when it comes from voices that are deeply in love with great wines.
Master Sommelier Andy Myers is the wine director for José Andrés' ThinkFoodGroup, including nationwide locations of Jaleo and other José Andrés restaurants. In his interview for Wine Spectator’s, “Sommelier Roundtable: New World Alternatives for Old World Palates” Andy stated:
“I’d send the Burgundy folks to Claude Koeberle and his stunning Soliste range of [Sonoma] Pinot Noirs. Pound for pound, these are some of the best Pinot Noirs in the world. I don’t like tossing “Burgundian” around when talking about New World wines, so I will just say that these show a magnificent marriage between form and function.”
