Pont Neuf Le Bruant 2015
“Le Bruant” is named for our village in the Haute Côte de Nuits of Burgundy, less than a dozen houses gathered around a source which brought delicious water all the way from the Alps. It comes from the gently sloping hills of Goldridge soil in the Martinelli Zio Tony Vineyard where the summer mornings are often foggy. The landscape is gentle and quiet and produces wonderfully elegant pinot noir. The ﬂavors, however, take us back to the hills above Burgundy where the locals hunt pheasant and wild boar and produce the best cassis. “Le Bruant” is the perfect combination of rustic backcountry ﬂavors and the reﬁnement unique to pinot noir. The wine is brilliant ruby and red-violet, in spite of being un-ﬁltered. Sweetly perfumed aromas of Huckleberry and Pomegranate mix with earthy forest ﬂoor and intensely pure red fruit ﬂavors. The ﬁne balance of acid and ripe fruit keeps it lively on the palate carrying the ﬂavors to a lingering ﬁnish. We recommend decanting at this early stage of development.
