2019 Villanelle (Fanfare Club Exclusive)
Tonnelier Vineyard ∞ Yamhill-Carlton AVA Reserve Pinot Noir
ONLY available to members of Fanfare Club. ONLY 55 cases produced. $58
Composed of 100% un-pressed wine, 2019 Villanelle has the lightest tannic structure of our Pinots. Named for Paul Dukas' duet for French Horn and Piano, it combines equal parts free-run Dijon clones 115 and 777 (19-year-old vines) from Tonnelier Vineyard's 4-acre micro-site on sedimentary Willakenzie soil. Barrel-aged for 12 months in French oak, this silky, elegant and delicate wine is “the little black dress” of Bells Up’s Pinots. ***The 2019 vintage marks the retirement of Tonnelier Vineyard's owners and the Villanelle label.***
