Le Pré du Col Vineyard: A Bergström Wines Estate
Planted 2006     *     Ribbon Ridge AVA     *     Elevation: 400ft

The first Ribbon Ridge AVA estate that we were honored to add to our portfolio. This magnificent 16-acre marine-sedimentary shallow sandy soil terroir is owned by the Hill family and farmed by Bergström Wines in partnership since its inception. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from this amazing site are known for their depth of spice, rare woods, incense and oceanic salinity aromatics and for their rich textural layers of fruited spice and earthy minerality. These are seriously age-worthy wines.

• Soils: Marine sedimentary sandy soils on shale and siltstone bedrock
• Exposures: Due South at 400 feet
• Vines: 16 years old
• Clonal Selections: Pommard, Wadenwil, and Dijon 777

Josh Bergström’s Notes

Pale to light red in color with an elegant nose of lemongrass, mint, oregano, subtle perfume, rose water, and cranberries. Fresh and delicate with a sophisticated balance of mossy earth and Rainier cherries. The mid-palate is full of bramble and savory chanterelle. The whole-cluster tannins are structured and while approachable now, they will age gracefully in the bottle.
