Blue Mountain Pinot Noir 2009

Member Review by zufrieden:

Another elegant, exceptionally made wine from Blue Mountain. For those of you who share my weakness for Nuits-Saint-Georges but not my penchant for parsimony, then ignore what follows. For the price, this wine has all the markings of a fine northern burgundy. The nose has the soft, youthfully feminine strawberry of a Canadian Pinot but also spice, earth, Devonshire Cream and hint of vanilla you might expect from a French doppleganger. The tongue can expect more of the same with soft, integrated tannin and balanced acidity. Simply the best Pinot Noir for the price I have ever tasted. Period. Unfortunately, I did not buy a full case.

Blue Mountain welcomes you to experience wines using exclusively estate grown grapes from its South Okanagan vineyard. Focusing on varietal wines made from Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Gamay Noir, and Pinot Noir, Blue Mountain strives to produce complex, age-worthy wines, consistent in style while allowing the expression of both the terroir and the individual growing season. At Blue Mountain, it also means the use of 100% estate-grown grapes. Following the estate concept to its fullest extent sets Blue Mountain apart from most North American wineries. Indeed, in the burgeoning industry of the Okanagan Valley, Blue Mountain can make the rare claim of more than 36 years of continuous grape production by one family. The grapes that are harvested for Blue Mountain wines are sourced solely from its own vineyard. A philosophy of sustainable land management ensures limited chemical input. Using classic varietals, which originate in France in growing conditions like our own, we limit our crop yields resulting in higher concentration of the fruit. In the winery, winemaker Matt Mavety combines new technology with traditional techniques. The wines are handled minimally to ensure that the delicacy and intensity of flavours cultivated in the vineyard are expressed in the wine. French oak barrels are used in the cellar to soften and add complexity. All of these factors combine to result in a style and finesse fitting to the varietals. Read less
