Pommard meets Volnay – The Quest for Perfection Continues. Redefining Finesse. We are proud to release the first of our 2011 vintage and next in our series of MonoClone® Pinot Noirs, Nouveau Monde. Expect great fascination from this incredibly aromatic, exotic and elegant Pinot Noir. Nouveau Monde is the pure expression of our Philosophy: To focus on a single clone to craft a wine that beautifully marries the virtues of both Volnay and Pommard. Nouveau Monde 2011, the intoxicating elegance of Pommard. 2011 Nouveau Monde Label 2011 Soliste Pinot Noir Nouveau Monde, Sonoma Coast Tasting Notes Le Regard / The Look The purest of ruby clarity and luminosity with vibrant boysenberry crystalline; a Cote de Beaune classic Le Nez / The Nose On the nose, exotic aromatics of intoxicating red fruits (raspberries, wild strawberries, tart red cherries) layered with violets, refined scents of sous-bois (forest floor), exotic spices interlaced with black tea leaves. As the wine evolves in the glass or decanter, the aromatics become more voluptuous with peppery red fruit compote texture, fattening up with vanilla, rose petals and a hint of truffles. Degustation / The Taste The palate delivers extraordinary energy and verve with a compelling concentration of caramelized red fruits spiked with vanilla and herbal tones. This is a wine of grande finesse, velvety and focused. It carries on with great purity into layers of griottines (wild cherries), black pepper, and cardamom. The mid-palate is laced of earthy sous-bois (forest floor), black tea, anise, and herbal aromatics, all in great balance and harmony. Positively silken in texture but palpably dense in aromatic concentration and tannins, the synergy between the fresh crystalline acidity and abundant yet fine tannins produces great length and finish seldom witnessed. 12.9% alc. 74 cases
