L'Espérance MonoClone Pinot Noir Vertical
L’ESPÉRANCE…L’ENFANT PRODIGUE of Soliste
Vertical of 2015, 2016 & 2017
L’ESPÉRANCE MonoClone® Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast
Elegance of the Grand Crus of Chambolle
A rare vertical release of the compelling elegance and hedonism of this MonoClone Pinot Noir.
This vertical exemplifies how each vintage shapes and reflects the beautiful subtle variations of three Pinots from a singular site, clone, and cooperage. It is an exceptional opportunity to taste how weather influences wine. The nuances have roots in Morey St Denis, Chambolle les Amoureuses, and Clos de LaRoche. More on that when you get to the tasting notes.
In 2005, we made our first Pinot Noir from the family vineyard (only 143 cases produced, that’s it!) located in a unique site that we believed would grant us the ability to craft wines with a style that would satisfy our infatuation for the great Burgundies that we love. In 2006, L’Espérance was born out of this vineyard focusing on a clone that would reflect a wine of great aromatics and purity. In 2009, from the same site, we challenged ourselves to make L’Espérance from that single vineyard, a single clone, and allocate a single cooperage barrel house in France to deliver uncompromised focus to the wine. The MonoClone® was born and we registered the trademark to protect our beliefs.
Here are the tasting notes for each of the three wines:
