Stephane Vivier is the winemaker behind legendary Domaine de la Romanée Conti's California operation, but crafts tiny amounts of wine under his own name from some of the most prestigious vineyards also sourced by more famous names like Kosta Browne, Chateau Boswell and Gary Farrell.

This is as serious as a Pinot gets under $45 and represents a true value that should be taken advantage of by savvy collectors. Pinot lovers looking for the perfect balance between “old world” sophistication and elegance and “new world” intensity and opulence will be thrilled with this new release.

“Classic” 95 points
“This Pinot Noir thoughtfully blends the best characteristics of each plot of land into a layered whole. Intensely complex with a medley of dried berry, plum, raspberry and cinnamon. The bold finish crescendos with savory baking spices, black tea, and orange peel for a vibrant and seductive experience to savor now through 2022.” - California Wine Advisors
