The concept for L'Angevin Wines is to seek out mature vineyards in cool climates and combine them with diligent vineyard care and classical winemaking techniques. L'Angevin began as a joint venture between Alan Peirson and Robbie Meyer who met at Peter Michael Winery where Robbie was the enologist and assistant winemaker, and Alan was the estate/project manager. This Pinot selection has a more traditional and feminine character when compared to our Sonoma Coast offering. Fresh black cherry, bergamot, mint, and tea leaves highlight the refined aroma profile. This wine is delicately smooth in the mouth and supplies plenty of beautiful fruit from start to finish.

"The 2009 Pinot Noir is a juicy, silky wine laced with expressive dark red fruit, flowers and spices. Higher-toned hints of mint and rose petals add lift and freshness throughout. This is an especially gracious, refined Pinot from L’Angevin and proprietors Alan Peirson and Robbie Meyer. I love the class and elegance here..."
