2010 Argyle Vintage Brut

91 Points, Wine Advocate
90 Points,
Wine Spectator

The balance and integrity of the 2010 growing season is striking, especially when viewed through the prism of our 2010 Vintage Brut. Lemon peel, strawberry pith, fresh ciabatta dough. The center is downreaching and creamy. In the background, a faint, brine accent persists, remnant of freshly shucked Kumumoto oysters. Energetic acidity and length, there is a satisfying resolution about this cuvée, inspiring one to reach for another glass of the fizz!

"Argyle’s 2010 Brut – nearly half each Chardonnay and Pinot – displays juicy lime, tangerine, grapefruit and apple, with citric and malic cut buffered by subtle, lees-induced creaminess, and with a fine mousse. There is an impressive balance between density and sheer sap on the one hand and levity and refreshment on the other. A saline streak serves for welcome saliva-inducement in a long, vibrant finish. Enjoy this exceptional value over the next 2-3 years – and meantime imagine how complex the “Extended Tirage” release is likely to be seven years from now!" —D.S.”

“Light, crisp and expressive, with a prickly fizz underscoring the lively pear and citrus flavors, finishing long, with a light toasty note. Drink now."—H.S.

The growing season started out unusually cool, delaying grape flowering until well into July. Poor pollination produced smaller than average clusters. Even then we were compelled to further thin our crop, removing grape clusters to get the yields well below average. There was just not enough growing season left to ripen a normal crop. A season saving string of 80+ degree days at the end of September gave us all hope of ripening and put life back into our plans to make red wine. A bit of warm, soaking rain in early October sent us into further removing leaves and working to keep fruit healthy. Mid October brought an great, dry forecast and harvest began with a bang to beat predicted October 23rd rains. Red wine was harvested with gusto beginning the 17th and and we wrapped up harvest the 21st October. Keys to our success were, small crop, healthy fruit, and patience to wait until the very end of the season to pick.
