The wines of Domaine de la Côte are the most sought-after California wines we sell. This project, jointly founded by renowned sommelier/wine writer Rajat Parr and winemaker Sashi Moorman, is very much about doing just one thing, and doing it very well. From a collection of five vineyards, they make small quantities of some of the finest Burgundy-inspired Pinot Noir in the state. The vineyards are planted over just 40 acres, farmed organically. In the winery, the approach is simple but with a relentless focus on preserving the quality of the exceptional fruit these vines produce, and on allowing each site to express its own unique character. The results are outstanding - a harmonious marriage of California sunshine and Burgundian elegance in a glass.
Domaine de la Côte 2020 Estate Pinot Noir
A blend of declassified fruit from the single vineyards. Still serious, yet immediately approachable and delicious.
Domaine de la Côte 2020 Bloom's Field Pinot Noir
One of the single vineyard wines situated on the southwest-facing hillside of the domaine. Full of exuberant, ripe strawberry fruit underpinned by a fine structure. If you can resist it now, it will mature over many years.
Domaine de la Côte 2020 Memorious Pinot Noir
Immediately downslope from Bloom's Field and right above the Santa Ynez River, Memorious produces a very elegant, beautifully balanced wine with lovely freshness and ripe red fruit.
Domaine de la Côte 2020 La Côte Pinot Noir
The finest vineyard of the estate, 'La Côte' makes the greatest, longest lived wine, one of the finest in California. A masterclass in California Pinot Noir and a worthy rival to the best that Burgundy has to offer.
With two small vintages in a row, allocations are well down and as a result we have just a few bottles of each of the 2020 releases to offer. First come, first served. You can browse the wines while they are available here.
