Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

The 2011 Pinot Noir Savoy captures the best qualities of the vintage at Radio Coteau. Nothing is out of balance in this fragrant, high-toned Pinot. In 2011 the Savoy is all about silk and nuance. Sweet, red berries, freshly cut flowers, licorice and spices are all layered into the polished refined finish. This is another drop-dead gorgeous wine from Radio-Coteau. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026.

(45% new oak): Bright ruby-red. Vibrant, seductive aromas of raspberry, candied rose, anise and smoky minerals. Intense, sharply focused cherry and red berry preserve flavors are brightened by a spicy nuance, picking up a floral pastille quality with aeration. The energetic finish repeats the red berry note and lingers on a sexy floral note. Taut, graceful pinot that smoothly blends power and finesse.

About This Producer


Radio Coteau works exclusively with small, cool-climate vineyard sites in western Sonoma County. Winegrower Eric Sussman's first vintage at the helm was 2001, after spending the years prior gaining experience with organic winegrowing in Washington and French winemaking in Bordeaux and Burgundy. Learning from the masters at the Chateaux Baron Philippe de Rothschild in 1995 and Domaines Comte Armand and Jacques Prieur in 1996, Eric returned stateside with a strong commitment to producing wines with a true "sense of place." The winery crafts Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Zinfandel, primarily from designated sites.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir


Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
