Wine Description

Beaux Freres The Beaux Freres Vineyard Pinot Noir 2021, crafted by the skilled hands of Winemaker Mike D. Etzel, is a testament to the transformative journey of this once 1940s dairy pasture now flourishing as 25 acres of captivating Pinot Noir vines, encircled by an almost mystical forest perimeter.

In the glass, it reveals a mesmerizing medium ruby-purple hue, hinting at the intricate flavors awaiting discovery. The aroma is a complex interplay of ripe, dark cherry skins, intertwined with alluring notes of orange zest and subtle white flowers. Undertones of bramble berries, licorice, and cardamom create an inviting bouquet, while a delicate hint of bark and potpourri adds depth to the olfactory experience.

On the palate, this vintage unfolds gracefully, showcasing a tight and refined structure enveloped by very fine tannins. The initial savory impression gradually gives way to a delightful interplay of wild blackberry and blueberry notes, harmoniously intertwined with hints of forest floor, licorice, and bitters. As it lingers, a long, floral finish emerges, leaving an impression of elegance and expressiveness that is both enchanting and effortlessly drinkable.

Earning critical acclaim with a 95 from James Suckling, 95 from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, and 94 from Wine Spectator, this vintage promises to captivate the senses and evolve beautifully over the years. Anticipated peak enjoyment is recommended from 2024, with the potential to age gracefully until 2033.

Critical Acclaim

WS 94
Wine Spectator
Dynamic and expressive, with fragrant violet and raspberry aromas that highlight spirited guava, white pepper and spiced tea flavors, which build toward medium-grained tannins. Drink now through 2033.
WA 95
Wine Advocate
Medium ruby-purple, the 2021 Pinot Noir The Beaux Frères Vineyard opens slowly on the nose to a core of wild blackberry and blueberry, revealing tones of forest floor, licorice, bitters and floral potpourri as it spends time in the glass. The light-bodied palate is soft and juicy with surprisingly concentrated flavors for its delicate frame, and it has a long, floral finish. This is elegant, expressive and easy to drink!
JS 95
James Suckling
Complex aromas of cherry stones, bramble berries, licorice, cardamom, bark and some potpourri. Salty olive undertones, too. It’s medium-bodied, tight and refined, with very fine tannins. Savory. Somewhat restrained for now. Unfined and unfiltered. Drink from 2024.

Pinot Noir grapes exhibit a distinct elegance. Their thin skins and tightly clustered berries make them susceptible to disease and challenging to cultivate. However, the rewards of this persnickety grape are extraordinary. Pinot Noir wines possess a remarkable flavor profile, often described as silky, with vibrant acidity, delicate tannins, and an array of aromas. Expect to encounter red fruit notes like cherry and raspberry, accompanied by earthy undertones, floral hints, and sometimes a touch of spice. Renowned regions such as Burgundy in France, the Willamette Valley in Oregon, and California's Sonoma County have become synonymous with exceptional Pinot Noir production. Each region brings its own terroir and climate, contributing to the wine's character. Burgundy, for instance,... Read More
