La Pitchoune Pinot Noir La Mission Sonoma Coast 2017

Pinot Noir  |  US


With a classic Sonoma Coast profile, this will remind you of the likes of Kosta Browne and Williams-Selyem, at a fraction of the cost..! Normally a staple for high-end by the glass programs around California (that is where we first discovered these wines), we scored on this beauty. We were literally blown away by the intensity and purity of this wine, then we got to work on this incredible price! WOW!

Let us continue to regale you on the wine -- fantastically precise and focused, with perfectly ripe strawberry, cherry compote with pomegranate, and an almost haunting rose and dried rose petal character. There’s a bit of black tea and hints of baking spice, to go along with the superb concentration of fruit. Drinks WAY over its price, for sure, and something that will definitely appeal to pinot lovers whose palates lean a little more towards complexity but without ever shorting on fruit intensity or ripeness. Wonderful juice!

We have about 29 cases at this terrific, not-to-be-seen-again price... While it lasts!

About the Producer

Tracy Nielsen and Peter Joachim Nielsen were inspired by a small family property in the south of France named "la pitchoune," or "the little one." The name speaks to small production, small lots, and the idea that small size is the greatest asset. The house theme is to produce pinot noirs that are not typically "California" in style, and they have prevailed again with this bottling of pinot.
