Pinot Noir Diversité 2010

Pinot Noir Diversité 2010

Varietal: 100% Pinot Noir

Alcohol: 13.0%

Tasting Notes: The Diversité cuvée is named for the varied selection of clones planted throughout Le Cadeau vineyard, and which are the fruit source for this wine. Unfiltered and powerful, this wild Pinot Noir features deep boysenberry and earth flavours which yield to lingering tones of liquorice and spice.

Reviews:

“Among an outstanding lineup of well-defined, beautifully refined Pinots from Le Cadeau, the Diversité takes top honors. Sourced from the winery’s vineyard in the Chehalem Mountains, it shows excellent varietal character, with exceptional depth and detail. It beautifully melds the notes of mixed red fruit, light earth, and sensitively-applied barrel.” 94 points (Paul Gregutt, Wine Enthusiast (Dec 2012)

“The mere 73 cases of Le Cadeau’s 2010 Pinot Noir Diversite were fermented by Scott Shull with cultured yeasts; raised in 30% new barrels, and bottled already after only 11 months. Cherry preserves and grenadine-like sweet intensity of raspberry are allied to an, in its own way, sweet, marrowy, multi-boned meatiness, as well as an underlying sense of stoniness, resulting in a sense of depth and interplay that follows all the way through a long, juicily persistent and invigoratingly fruit skin-edged finish. In common with other wines from this estate – notwithstanding its multiple vintners and segregation of parcels – there is a combination of dark, intriguing flavors and textural allure with juicy vivacity, though I am just as prepared to say that this is a description of the unique potential of Pinot Noir as to suggest that it might be attributable to site. Look for at least the better part of a decade’s satisfaction.” 92 points (David Schildknecht, Wine Advocate, Aug 2012)
