Cycles Clement, a part of the Cycles Gladiator family of wines, is an expression of pure, uninhibited joy. The 2007 Cycles Clement Pinot Noir is vivacious with strong, lush tones of berries layered with supple notes of oak. Sturdy tannins lead to a silky, pleasing, fruit-burst filled finish; a signature of great California Coastal Pinot Noir.
The invention of the bicycle ushered in a new spirit of freedom during the late 19th century. Urban transportation became easy, fast, and accessible. The Golden Age of Cycles reached its pinnacle in the mid 1890s-the heart of the Belle Epoque. The newfound freedom of the bicycle, a benchmark for this innovative period of time, was communicated through beautiful posters created for each bicycle of the day.
The Cycles Clement poster painted in 1894 by PAL (Jean de Paleologue), one of the great Parisian artists of the day, evokes the elegance, grace, and Joy of cycling. In every bottle of Cycles Clement wine we capture the uninhibited joy that begins in California vineyards, builds over time as the wine is made and is then eventually unleashed into every glass. With Cycles Clement Pinot Noir, wine lovers now have the "Freedom to Enjoy!"
