In 2000, Lenné Estate was born. But, success didn’t come overnight.
- Today, Lenné Estate produces Pinot Noir under three distinct labels, of which, each is entirely from the 21-acre estate.
- LeNez is composed of fruit from each of the five clones. The LeNez is the most fruit-forward of the bottlings.
- Lenné Estate is a barrel selection of the finest parts of the vineyard. The primary grapes are the 114 clones, and the Pommard, with a small selection of the other clones. This wine has more black and bing cherry aromatics. It can age for up to 8 years.
- Cinq Élus is a blend of the best barrel from each of the five different clonal blocks. This wine has many layers and should be magnificent with six to ten years in the bottle.
And now for the Chardonnay
Wine tasting notes
Brand approach: Minimal intervention
Per Steve Lutz: “We believe that single site wines are more important than ever because of the homogenous nature of blending. Lenné is all about dry-farmed, deep-rooted, single site Pinot Noir.”
Lenne Estate wines are available for shipment or pick up directly from the winery. Tours of the vineyard and tastings are by appointment. Steve also hosts Zoom chats and online Blind Tastings, which have been so successful he plans to continue them indefinitely. You can find more info on all upcoming events on the Lenne’ Facebook page
