Vintage Notes: 

2019 was more aligned with pre-climate change vintages that veteran vintners fondly reminisce on, the coolest vintage since 2011.  The growing season was warmer than normal which led to a successful and consistent bloom, followed by late summer rains in both August and September. The wines from this vintage are very beautiful with a feminine character of floral notes, lower alcohol and brightness bolstered by fresh acidity. – Jared Etzel, winemaker

Vineyard:

Dundee Hills Iron Filbert Vineyard

Aging:

Aged on lees for 11 months in neutral French Oak barrels. Coopers include Atelier Centre France, Taransaud, and François Frères. We practice primary and secondary fermentations, embracing the micro-biome present in our vineyards. Fermentation occurred in concrete and stainless tanks. We included 20% whole cluster and maintained a cool fermentation temperature which reached a maximum of 85F. 

Winemaking:

: Domaine Roy & fils mission is to produce wines of purity and transparency at the highest level from our land in Dundee and Yamhill-Carlton. Marc-André Roy and winemaker Jared Etzel established Domaine Roy & fils in 2012 to celebrate their heritage and continue the winemaking history of their fathers, Robert Roy and Michael Etzel, who founded Beaux Frères Winery in 1991. Over 20 years later, the two families have kept the same focus of producing timeless wine through meticulous and almost obsessive work in the estate vineyards. We will continue the tradition of making fine wine and are humbled by the opportunity to work with two exceptional properties in one of the frontiers for premium Pinot Noir. Through meticulous stewardship of the land, a minimalist winemaking approach and a commitment to organic farming, Domaine Roy & fils wines exhibit a full expression of vintage and terroir.

Release Date:
