Typically this cuvée offers cinnamon, allspice and earthy notes of forest floor and bramble. In some years the Cuvée du Tonnelier includes significant whole cluster fermented fruit, contributing powerful structure with supple fruit. Like all our Pinot Noir bottling, the Cuvée typically benefits from four to eight years in the cellar but it is often the first of our reserve Pinot Noirs to be generously approachable.

Displaying the complex, lightly fecund aromatics that often accompany biodynamic farming, this is a sexy, sumptuous mix of citrus rind, mashed berries and sweet spice. Flavors and accents are seamlessly interwoven and carry through a lovely, lingering finish.

The 2017 Pinot Noir Cuvée du Tonnelier comes from "the older, own-rooted Pommard clone vines planted in 1990, which I finished tearing out, sadly, this year," says Doug Tunnell. "But that is life." It was made with 25% whole clusters and was aged in about 30% new French oak. Pale ruby-purple in color, it's scented of warm cranberries, blackberries, strawberries and raspberries with nuances of tree bark, potpourri and tangerine peel. It's light to medium-bodied and elegant with a gentle frame and long, refreshing finish.

Pretty rose petal, raspberry and orange peel aromas give way to an alluring and sleek texture that fans out on the long finish. Drink now through 2026.
