Dijon Clones

Founder Jim Bernau traveled with the Oregon Governor's Delegation to Burgundy in the 1980s to seek out French clones to improve our state's Chardonnay quality. These vines were brought back and quarantined at Oregon State University before being propagated for use in Oregon vineyards. Naturally derived Dijon Clones from France being planted in the Willamette Valley was one of the greatest tipping points in Oregon wine quality.

2019 Dijon Clone Pinot Noir

A classically-styled Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, the wine offers a fruit-forward nose of ripe red cherry, raspberry and cranberry accented by baking spice and red clay earth. The palate is juicy and round with a medium-bodied silky texture, flavors that mirror aromas with the addition of sweet barrel toast, and balancing acidity that retains the wine’s vibrancy.
 

 


2017 Dijon Clone Chardonnay

The nose opens with aromas of fresh tropical fruit, pear, pineapple and honey that unfolds into a creamy medium-bodied palate offering a beautiful textural experience and carries in flavors of minerality with a kiss of oak. The finish is long with balancing acidity to highlight its vibrancy and notes of crème brûlée that linger far beyond the sip.
