Argyle Brut 2015
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Blended from 70 percent pinot noir, 20 percent chardonnay and the rest pinot meunier, this fine-boned sparkler has an earth tone reminiscent of pinot noir bruts. It smells of bread crust and lemon zest, with vinous flavors and zippy acids
Polished and elegantly focused, with pretty appeal and flavors of brioche and spice, lingering on the finish. Drink now.
Twenty-five years ago, Argyle began making wine in Oregon's Willamette Valley. Since 1987, winemaker Rollin Soles and viticulturist Allen Holstein have teamed up to produce world-class method champenoise sparkling wines, barrel-fermented Chardonnay, and silky-textured Pinor Noir from low-yielding vines that are winery farmed on some of the best hillside slopes and elevations. Argyle wines have received a total of 11 Wine Spectator Top 100 designations - more than any other winery in Oregon. The Argyle wines represented on this list include sparkling wine, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, truly making Argyle one of the finest practitioners of the craft of elegant, long-lived winegrowing.
