Winemaker Notes

#35 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2019

Its sweet earth and spice aromas always prevail, yet in this vintage they discovered a new bouquet of wildflower blooms — a welcome evolution, or perhaps a signature of the vintage. The palate shows hallmark depth and balance, with candied berry, granite, and a waft of expertly roasted coffee. Long, lithe tannins carry the composition to an electric finish. They noted several moments passed before full expression in the glass, promoting their strong suspicion of timeless cellar potential.

Critical Acclaim

WS 96
Wine Spectator

Seduces you immediately, with expressive violet and dark raspberry aromas that open to polished and brilliantly structured blueberry, savory anise and tea flavors that take on richness on a long finish. Drink now through 2026.

JS 96
James Suckling

This has beautiful aromas of raspberries, cranberries, blueberries, cherry pits, stones, red tea, lemon zest and some asphalt. It’s medium-bodied with finely knit tannins and bright, crunchy acidity. Racy, zesty and fruity. Some fresh mushroom at the end. Drink from 2024.

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Medium ruby, the 2017 Pinot Noir The Upper Terrace offers inviting scents of crushed cranberries, red currants, orange oil, black tea leaves, earth, brown sugar and sweet spices with hints of dried flowers, autumn leaves and amaro, a very pretty interplay of sweet fruits and bitter notes. Medium-bodied, it floods the mouth with spicy fruits, finely grained and very fresh, finishing very long. Rating: 93+

Beaux Freres, Oregon
Beaux Freres Beaux Frères Vineyard  Winery Image

Beaux Frères is one of the earliest and now leading wineries in Oregon, founded by Michael G. Etzel, and brother-in-law (“Beaux Frères” in French) wine critic Robert M. Parker Jr in 1986. Located on an 88-acre farm, Beaux Frères resides on the most prestigious terroirs of Willamette Valley. Since their first vintage in 1991, the Beaux Frères philosophy remains the same; to produce a world-class Pinot Noir from small, well-balanced yields and ripe, healthy fruit that represent the essence of the vineyard. Beaux Frères has had biodynamic and organic practices since 2002.

In 2017, Maisons & Domaines Henriot embarked on a partnership with Michael Etzel acquiring Beaux Frères.

In the summer of 1986, my young family and I began on a journey that, in our wildest optimism, never thought Beaux Frères and our Oregon wine industry would be on the center stage with the fine wine industry. I believe our success is a lesson for anyone with a dream: follow your heart. – Michael G. Etzel, Founder and CEO
