"Racines is a single wine brand created by some of the finest hands of the winemaking world - we are talking Burgundy royalty teaming up with California genius. Etienne de Montille, proprietor of iconic Burgundy estate Domaine de Montille founded in the 17th century, and his Chef de Cave, Brian Sieve, have collaborated with Rodolphe Péters of cult Champagne house Champagne Péters and renowned, hugely in demand winemaker Justin Willett of Santa Barbara AVA, USA with a shared vision to create some of the most exceptional wines in the world from the finest vineyards in the land, stunning vineyards which are hugely in demand with the most savvy and ambitious winemakers.
A combination of three parcels throughout the famous Sanford & Benedict vineyard. Two of the plantings are 10-12 years old, but certainly responsible for the dark, deep core of this wine. The third piece, a small fermentation of the original, own-rooted plantings from 1971, bring the elegance and floral lift. Aged for 18 months in about forty percent new french oak barrels.
VINOUS - 92 pts "The 2017 Pinot Noir Sanford & Benedict is sensual, silky and impeccable in its balance. There is lovely nuance in the glass to match the wine's mid-weight, restrained personality. Sweet floral notes and purplish fruit linger in the glass. My impression is that the 2017 is still recovering from its relatively recent bottling. We will see." - Antonio Galloni"
