The clone is sometimes referred to as “tiny hand grenades” for the enormous punch it packs. Our Dijon 115 is no exception. It is a big, full bodied, bold and as juicy as can be. This vintage's version brings some ellegance and refinement back that can be lost in hotter years with a more fruit forward approach. The seamlessly integrated 2016 Dijon 115 Pinot Noir is a wine that at this stage, looks as though it will probably age a few years longer than some of its predecessors.
The Founders’ Selection is only made in the best of years and in limited quantities. Laurent Montalieu is looking for depth, balance, and complexity; leading him to make only four barrels from the 2015 vintage.
