About

91

The counterpart to the producer's Vin Clair (the white version), this blends 52% Pinot Noir & 48% Chardonnay from the same sites into a Beaujolais-like bright, light red that will do well serve slightly chilled. Pungent in earth, it offers dusty flavors of cherry & pomegranate, with a buzzy energy from the high-toned acidity.

Product Description:

"Vin Clair and Vin Rubis were created for fun, and so that we’d have something delicious to drink the year after harvest. Both made from 52% Pinot Noir and 48% Chardonnay grapes; half the harvest is made into a white wine, while the other a light red.

2017 Vin Clair is crisp and zippy, beautiful aromatics yet packed with citrus, ripe pear and jasmine with a long mouthwatering finish. 2017 Vin Rubis is tastiest served with a chill right out of the fridge, and has all those boisterous rhubarb, cherry, and hard spice notes you love about Pinot Noir but with the lingering vibrant core of a dry white wine.

Vin Clair and Vin Rubis are our favorite pair of wines for the table, whether it’s lunch, brunch or on a picnic blanket!" - Winery
