2017 Cuvée Constantin Pinot Noir 15L
Our Cuvée Constantin is a nod to the original Flâneur. When renowned poet Charles Baudelaire first wrote about the Flâneur, the connoisseur of modern life, Constantin Guys was his inspiration. Constantin was a stroller, observer and painter of the crowds in the streets of Paris in the mid-19th century.
Cuvee Constantin is a blend of our two estate vineyards: La Belle Promenade and Flanerie. With this bottling we aim to show how these two unique sites compliment each other. La Belle Promenade, high up in the Chehalem Mts, with pure volcanic soils, brings upfront fruit appeal and bright acidity. The Flanerie Vineyard, on the eastern edge of Ribbon Ridge, sitting on all marine sedimentary soils, brings darker fruits, spice, and structure to the blend.
