2004 Belle Vallée Grand Cuvée Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., 310 cases, $48, wax capsule. From the best vineyards and best barrels in the cellar. 62% Dijon 115 and 38% Pommard clones. · A voluptuous Pinot Noir with copious amounts of fruit and oak. Fat on the palate but plenty of acidity to keep everything in harmony. Still very tight and needs some lengthy cellar time to come together. This wine is for lovers of the flashy Caliesque style of Pinot Noir Reviewed August 14, 2006
