2019 Beau Marchais Pinot Noir Clos Pepe #6

From the same site yet from a slightly warmer, more sheltered section of the vineyard, the 2019 Pinot Noir Clos Pepe #6 is similarly colored yet has a very different style, with huge notes of framboise, mulled strawberries, orange blossom, candied flowers, and incense all emerging from the glass. More ripe, powerful, and sexy on the palate, it doesn’t quite have the density of the #5 cuvee, but it’s just about as sexy and opulent as Pinot Noir gets. Nevertheless, it has beautiful balance, notable underlying structure, and a great, great finish. If 12% or less alcohol Burgundy is your thing, this isn’t for you, but it’s going to be a stunning expression of Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir.

This new label is a collaboration between Adam Lee and the Rhône Valley’s Philippe Cambie. While not yet bottled, these are ripe, sexy, singular beauties well worth seeking out.

2019 Beau Marchais Pinot Noir Clos Pepe #5

The 2019 Pinot Noir Clos Pepe #5 comes from a valley floor site in the Sta. Rita Hills and a cooler parcel in the vineyard that faces the Pacific Ocean. It was mostly destemmed (30-35% stems) clone 667 and Pommard and saw an extended maceration of 48 days. It offers more cassis, candied orange violets, and sappy herb notes to go with a gorgeously polished, medium to full-bodied, silky style on the palate that still carries plenty of vibrant acidity and fine tannins.
