Winemaker Notes

The concentrated ruby color of the 2017 Savoy Pinot Noir hints at the bright fruit that first greets the nose and palate. Ripe red cherry, strawberry, and pomegranate delight and linger, while delicate foraged mushroom and sous bois notes beckon from an earthier place. Nuanced elements of leather and pipe tobacco offer additional depth and character. Rounded out by well-integrated tannins and a graceful mid-weight texture, the 2017 Savoy Pinot Noir is a luxurious study in finesse and harmony that will continue to age delicately over time.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 93
Vinous

The 2017 Pinot Noir Savoy is the most open-knit and accessible of the young Radio-Coteau Pinots. Sweet red cherry, tobacco, spice and leather notes are all generous in a fleshy, succulent Pinot that will drink well for the next decade or so.

Eric Sussman first heard the expression radio coteau from a friend while living and working in Burgundy. More than a preference for how you discover these wines, the name reflects a commitment to capturing reflections of soil, seasons, people and place. In 2002, Eric established Radio-Coteau, focusing on the north coast vineyards of western Sonoma County and Anderson Valley. With their benchland locations, well-drained soils, exposure by capricious marine air and fog, these sites host grapes naturally suited to their surrounding elements. This natural selection afforded Eric an opportunity to refine his Old World experiences while working with New World grapes. For more than a decade, he has strived to balance nature’s expression with a delicate, but disciplined human touch in these handcrafted wines.

Anderson Valley, located in Mendocino County just above Sonoma County, is one of California’s coolest AVAs, allowing it a long growing season. Only 15 miles long, the region makes a slice eastward through the mountains, from the frigid Pacific Ocean. Dramatic diurnal temperature variations here preserve grape acidity and thus freshness in the finished wines. These are prime conditions for growing Pinot Noir, and the valley produces many fine versions. Characteristics of Anderson Valley Pinot Noir typically include crisp acidity, cranberry and strawberry notes as well as earthy notes of forest floor and mushroom.

Still Pinot Noir, however, is only part of the story. Pinot Noir, along with Chardonnay, are also grown for Anderson Valley’s exceptional sparkling wines. Produced via the traditional method, these offer a classic toasty note from lees aging, bright, complex fruit notes and a clean, refreshing character.
