2017 Pinot Noir Dijon 777
The 777 clone is early ripening, with small, cone-shaped clusters. It usually has the most intense color of the vintage due to small berries with thick skins and a higher seed count. Very aromatic with dense and complex black fruit flavors, with leather, tobacco; spicy and earthy notes. This aromatic and structural intensity has the potential to overpower if not managed properly, and is well suited to whole cluster fermentation in our experience.
