This wine opens with aromas of toasted bread, lemon curd, strawberry, peach, and roasted hazelnuts.  There is nice weight on the attack, and a fine mousse highlights notes of grilled bread, orange zest, toasted hazelnut, fig, and stone fruit.  A long, structured finish highlights the toasty autolysis characters of the wine.

The 2016 harvest was another early one, with nice, warm days for flavor development. Wines from this vintage are marked by elegance and fine structure.  For the 2016 DVX, nine special lots were chosen for the blend.  Eleven percent of the blend was fermented in older barrels, contributing beautiful spice accents and rich mouthfeel to the wine.

Each year we honor our founding winemaker, Guy Devaux with a special blend to highlight the vintage.  We have only one rule: the base blend must be 50% Pinot Noir and 50% Chardonnay.  From there, it’s carte blanche for the winemaking team to select the very best vineyard lots that promise a balance between elegance, power, and age-ability. Usually fewer than 10 lots will make the cut.

This wine is a perfect pairing for a seafood linguine made with squid ink pasta or a mushroom risotto.
