Winemaker Notes

Lifted aromas of red and dark berries, dried flowers and herbs with touches of spice and woodsmoke. The palate fills the mouth with fleshy red fruits, cherry cola and earthy layers. Gentle tannins provide a structured yet soft frame to the fruit which is kept in line by a satisfying minerality. The wine finishes long with clarity and focus.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 93
Vinous
Limpid ruby-red. Explosive aromas of fresh red berries, cherry liqueur, incense and candied lavender, along with a building suggestion of Asian spices. Vibrant, spice-laced raspberry and bitter cherry flavors become sweeter and deeper with aeration. In a fresh, nervy style for the vintage but in no way lacking for depth of flavor. Closes sappy, gently sweet and very long, with silky, slow-building tannins adding shape and final grip. (made entirely with whole clusters and raised in French oak barrels, 30% of them new)
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Plump and polished, with expressive raspberry and pomegranate flavors accented by citrus zest and green tea hints.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Destemmed whole berries were fermented in 35% new French oak. The wine is not too oaky, but firm with ripe tannins and tangy berry and pomegranate fruit. There are notes of dark chocolate and underlying minerality.

Driven by a tireless hunt for elusive sites where Pinot Noir shines, Maison L'Envoyé traverses the globe with the intention of presenting the acme of regionality and winemaking styles. Originating in Burgundy, they pursued gilded terroir to craft this region's wine trinity: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Gamay Noir. Yet from this tenor of focus and commitment a global fellowship emerged, with terroir-driven Pinot Noir as the linchpin. Now, with winemaking footprints in Burgundy, Willamette Valley, Tasmania and Central Otago, Maison L'Envoyé champions many unsung growers who have farmed their vineyards for decades and generations, some mere feet away from more illustriously cited neighbors. This project has been a standout since its debut in 2011 including Wine & Spirits naming Maison L'Envoyé a 'Winery To Watch' in 2015.

Home of some of the planet’s most amazingly elegant and expressive Pinot noir, the Willamette Valley is a pastoral, mixed landscape of green, bucolic rolling hills, dramatic forestlands and small, independent, friendly wine growers. As a leader in environmental stewardship, the valley has some of the nation’s most protective land use policies, with two-thirds of its vineyards farmed sustainably and over half, organically. While the valley claims a cool, continental climate, and is heavily influenced by the cold, moist winds of the Pacific Ocean, its warm and dry summers allow for the steady, even ripening of Pinot noir.

The potential of Willamette Valley Pinot noir continues to attract the investment of serious growers and winemakers both locally and from abroad, as naturally the finished wines bring accolades from professionals and enthusiasts. With a range of styles from delicate dried cherry, raspberry and hibiscus to stronger notes of truffle, mocha, plum and spice, a fine Willamette Valley Pinot noir is a perfect expression of both character and grace.
