2000 Chalone - Brosseau Vineyard

This vineyard sits high in the Gavilan mountain range with a commanding view stretching north to Monterey Bay.At an elevation of nearly 1800 feet,it is above the fog layer that covers the Salinas Valley,yet benefits from its cooling influence. Warm days are tempered by considerable wine,and nights are cool,allowing pinot noir to achieve mature fruit flavors on this site.The soil here is a mix of granite and limestone that is unique among all of our pinot,and which adds elegance to the wine.The 2000 vintage has lovely balance,with earthy cherry fruit supported by hints of woodsmoke from the barrel.The palate is soft, making the wine enjoyable now.We produced 200 cases.
