100% Pinot Noir
VINEYARD A variety of top sites in the valley: De La Montanya, Bucher Vineyard Tory Block (Pommard) and Bucher Vineyard North L Block (Dijon 777). Soils are Yorkville clay and Josephine loam at Bucher, and Huichica clay and Spreckels loam at De La Montanya.
VINIFICATION & AGING As traditionally practiced in Burgundy, Ramey uses an anaerobic approach to this Pinot to preserve the freshness and fruit characteristics. It is aged sur lies with monthly bâtonnage and spends fourteen months in 49% new French barrels (François Frères & Demptos). This wine is lightly fined with egg white and bottled without filtration.
