2018 was a very hot and dry season with fantastic weather during harvest. Normally, this would cause us to expect overripe fruit, but we were fortunate that this did not happen. The 2018 Block C Clone 777 Pinot Noir grapes developed sugar slowly and steadily and remained balanced. We were able to hang well into September for color and skin development. Great weather meant no concerns about rot or botrytis or rain damage at all. This was an ideal vintage, at least at Domaine Lumineux’s high elevation. The wines are generally extremely dark, with great mellow tannins, intense concentrated fruit, and ideal acidity.

The 2018 Block C Clone 777 is intense and concentrated, showcasing dark cherry fruit on the nose with frontal forward red fruit flavor. Subtle spicy woodiness with a trace of vanilla. Mid-palate is balanced with firm, but relatively fine tannins. This wine is very well rounded with deep color and balanced structure. It is drinkable young, because of the forward fruit, but it also has the structure and acidity to age well for a long time.
