Our Wine Of The Week is another great summer sip – 2014 La Pitchoune Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. Last year we received a sampling of several La Pitchoune wines and featured their Chenin Blanc as Wine Of The Week in July 2019. This bottle of Pinot Noir rested for a year in a stable environment and when opened this week, proved worth the wait. Pinot Noir is a great alternative to bigger varietals when looking for wine that goes with a wide variety of foods or is great for sipping on it’s own.
Unfortunately, the 2014 vintage is becoming scarce in retail, but La Pitchoune has released five 2015 Pinot’s in the $40 – $60 price range worth a sip. Served in better restaurants and available in several Northern California wine shops, click here to see where.
La Pitchoune Winery (“the little one”) is a small lot producer sourcing grapes from Northern California, including Chenin Blanc from Merritt Island and Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from Sonoma County (Sonoma Mountain, Sonoma Coast, Russian River Valley). Wines are produced near Santa Rosa (Sonoma County), where tastings of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are available by appointment only.
Disclosure: Author was provided free samples by the winery to support this review.
