Creating the Pinot Noir Classique is always so enjoyable because you can clearly feel a sense of the individual sites layered in this wine. With Pinot, our catalog of vineyards is much lighter than Riesling, which makes it easier to discern particular characteristics from 3-5 sites (rather than 10-15). We admire all of the Pinot lieux-dits, both for their conviction to transcribe the land and their ability to coalesce so harmoniously in the Classique.

Item Description
Creating the Pinot Noir Classique is always so enjoyable because you can clearly feel a sense of the individual sites layered in this wine. With Pinot, our catalog of vineyards is much lighter than Riesling, which makes it easier to discern particular characteristics from 3-5 sites (rather than 10-15). We admire all of the Pinot lieux-dits, both for their conviction to transcribe the land and their ability to coalesce so harmoniously in the Classique.

This is the opportunity for each site to have their moment center stage
while being fully supported by the rest of the cast. Take the intensity and wildness of Leidenfrost for example, which is softened by the supple figure of Bellows. Tango Oaks, our own beautiful version of Chambolle that provides lift and generosity of fruit.

Our Pinot Noir Classique is an open door to the possibilities of cool climate Pinot grown on shale in our region
About Forge Cellars
We are a small, artisanal producer focusing entirely on Riesling and Pinot Noir. We are made up of three like-minded and passionate friends--French Winemaker-Grower, Louis Barruol of Château de Saint Cosme in Gigondas and Finger Lakes partners Justin Boyette (Winemaker) and Richard Rainey (Vineyards, General Manager).

We strive to grow grapes and handcraft wines of interest and value that perfectly balance minerality, aromatics and fruit to reflect our exceptional Finger Lakes terroir. Each vintage is viewed as an opportunity to express our region - to reflect its soils, its cool climate and its hillside lake terroirs.

Our choices in the cellar guard the purity of our vineyards. Simply put, we make wine in the traditional, handcrafted manner. We harvest by hand. We sort by hand. We load the grapes into the press by hand. We shovel the vats out by hand. We employ spontaneous fermentation and ferment in very tiny lots, so that we truly understand the expression of the vineyard each year. We use very low levels of sulphur and don't fine or filter our red wines.
