More Vintages and Sizes of Beaux Freres - Pinot Noir The Beaux Freres Vineyard:
International Wine Cellar
Author: Stephen Tanzer
Issue: Issue 107
($69) At the outset: Moderately saturated medium red. Nose dominated by smoky oak, coffee grounds and menthol. Offers good texture and richness but only modest verve and definition of flavor, despite the considerable CO2 Substantial oak tannins dry the tongue. After 24 hours: Much more complex aromas of sappy red cherry, strawberry, mocha and spices to go with the nutty oak. Rich, chewy and strong, with nicely concentrated red fruit flavors. Finishes with smooth tannins and excellent persistence.

A bit light in color, but plenty rich in flavor, offering a lively mouthful of plum, blackberry and black pepper that echoes beautifully on the open-textured finish. Surprisingly refined, not as bold as most Beaux Frères vintages. 2,821 cases made.
