The Winery

Beaux Frères

Since the first vintage in 1991, the Beaux Frères philosophy remains the same; to produce a world-class Pinot Noir from small, well-balanced yields and ripe, healthy fruit that represents the essence of their vineyard. In pursuit of these goals, the Beaux Frères Vineyard is planted with tightly spaced vines, and yields are kept to some of the lowest in the industry. The grapes are harvested when physiologically (rather than analytically) ripe.

The winemaking philosophy is one of minimal intervention with clean fermentations utilizing indigenous yeast. The wines are stored in French oak for 10 to 12 months adjusting the percentage of new oak to compliment the wine of the vintage. Beaux Frères is never racked until it is removed from barrel for bottling, which occurs without fining or filtration. These non-manipulative, uncompromising methods guarantee a wine that is the most natural and authentic vineyard expression possible. Previous vintages demonstrate that these methods also allow the Beaux Frères to develop significant perfume, weight, and texture in the bottle.

Tasting Notes

WE92
Gorgeous aromas of bacon and cherry mix with toast before a palate that’s full of black cherry, plum and vanilla cream. The texture is marvelous, as is its pulse; this is a racy wine filled with rich fruit and firm acids. Cellar Selection
WS92
Richer and fleshier than most '00s, beautifully balanced to focus its currant, blueberry and blackberry flavors on superfine tannins, finishing generous, round and spicy, with a delicate hint of oak.
