2018 Dijon 777 Clonal Series Pinot Noir Bottle

2018 Dijon 777 Clonal

Each year we put the spotlight on one of the 12 different Pinot Noir clones grown at Domaine Carneros by bottling it separately. We first bottled the Dijon 777 in 2010, and this is only the fourth time that we have featured it. This single clone wine was handled in a very straightforward manner, with a traditional Burgundian-style open top fermentation and gentle punch-downs to the cap to extract flavor. With time in the glass, the tannins of this youthful wine become rounder and suppler as they uncoil, the 777 clone's hallmark texture, ripe and juicy, beautifully expressed.

Tasting Notes

On the nose one encounters frutas del bosque (red raspberry, black raspberry, blackberry), saddle leather, and forest. Unfined and unfiltered, focused fruit and spice notes interlayer with black cherry, raspberries, cocoa powder, and tea leaves. With time in the glass, the tannins of this youthful wine become rounder and suppler as they uncoil, the 777 clone's hallmark texture, ripe and juicy, beautifully expressed.
