Wine Spectator: Two Messengers among “8 Outstanding Oregon Pinot Noirs at $35 or Less”
Tim Fish of Wine Spectator highlights only eight of Oregon’s Pinot Noirs in his recent coverage of the region, and includes Maison L’Envoyé’s Two Messengers Pinot Noir. “Oregon’s 2021 vintage was a relief for winemakers after the challenges of 2020. The 2021s are generally perfumed, fresh and vibrant, and this is true throughout the state, not just in Oregon’s Pinot Noir heartland, Willamette Valley. That’s the takeaway from this week’s selection of newly released wines that scored 90 points or higher,” says Fish.
Highlighted in the article is MAISON L’ENVOYÉ, the brand known for hunting down exceptional sites for Pinot Noir in the lauded areas where Pinot Noir reigns. Here is his review:
Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2021
Score: 92 | SRP $32
Wine Spectator review: Generous and sleekly layered, with polished raspberry, pomegranate and black tea flavors that finish with supple tannins. Drink now through 2030. 3,000 cases made.—Tim Fish
