2018 Villanelle Tonnelier Vineyard Reserve Pinot Noir Awarded 90 Points from Wine Enthusiast

More praise for the next-to-last vintage of Villanelle. The 2018 bottling of Winemaker Dave’s “little black dress” pinot noir has been awarded a 90-point score from Paul Gregutt, Contributing Editor at Wine Enthusiast (wines receiving scores from 90-93 are considered “Excellent” and “Highly Recommended”). Gregutt focuses solely on reviewing the wines of Oregon and Canada for the magazine. He writes:

All free-run juice, aged in 40% new French oak, this is an elegant wine that will reward extra attention. It’s based in juicy raspberry fruit with a lemony tang. There is a hint of white asparagus underlying an otherwise pretty and rather subtle wine. The vegetal note shows in the back of the palate as the wine finishes.

While this is AMAZING news, we are sorry to say that 2018 Villanelle is completely sold out. However, we have just released the 2019 Villanelle, which will be the final vintage of this wine. Exclusively for members of Fanfare Club, 2019 Villanelle is available for purchase to take home today or hold for fall shipping.
