The 2006 Pinot Noir En Famille aged in 600-liter demi-muids is made from the same suitcase clones that produced the Coteaux Nobles. Deep ruby/purple with a smoky almost meaty nose intermixed with sweet strawberry and black cherry liqueur again a floral note and the forest floor fragrance it is broad rich and fruit-driven but already complex and promising. This wine should drink nicely for 5-7 years.Luc Morlet has been traveling a lot with his older brother taking over for him at Peter Michael where he still remains in a quasi-consulting role. He seemed to be settled at Staglin Family Vineyards but that lasted only a few months and he is doing what he wants now producing his own wines. These are the debut releases. (While there will be two Chardonnays added to the portfolio most of this is from the Sonoma Coast.) These are very impressive wines.

Less fruity and high-toned on the nose than the Coteaux Nobles but with good purity to its reticent flavors of raspberry cherry and graphite. Rich in the mouth with the red fruit flavors complicated by a sweet suggestion of blond tobacco. Ultimately rounder thicker and more concentrated than the Coteaux Nobles and sweeter on the finish. But this also has more grip and really fills the retronasal passage with perfume.
