Nicolas Jay : Pinot Noir 2016

The complexity and refinement of a Willamette Valley wine

The estate

The Nicolas Jay winery sprang from the friendship between Jean-Nicolas Méo, a Burgundian winemaker and Jay Boberg, an American music producer.

Located in the heart of the North Willamette Valley in Oregon, the estate tends to a terroir composed mainly of old vines. Moreover, relationships with partner winegrowers, who farm their vineyards organically and biodynamically, ensure the supply of high-quality grapes.

The vineyard

Nicolas Jay's 2016 Pinot Noir is a Willamette Valley wine made from a rigorous selection of vineyards in the northwestern part of the Oregon wine region.

The blend

Pinot Noir (100%).

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Pinot Noir is pale to medium ruby-purple in color with a nose of warm red and black cherries and cranberry plus touches of crushed blueberries, cinnamon stick, charcuterie and underbrush. Light to medium-bodied, it has good concentration of warm red and black fruits in the mouth with earthy and spicy layers, soft, grainy tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing long. 3,000 cases produced.
