Originally named Ravat 51, this grape was thought to be a cross of Seibel and Pinot de Corton, a Pinot Noir clone; however, recent genetic testing revealed that it shares no genetic markers with its ostensible parents. Its origin remains a mystery! Vignoles vines are vigorous and moderately hardy. Producing plenty of clean fruit in small, compact clusters, they age late in the season which protects them against early frost. The grapes have thick skin and can easily hang on the vine until late fall with very sweet juice and solid acidity at maturity.
Vintage Notes
The 2019 growing season was technically a “cooler year” with around 2400 growing degree days, just shy of the 2500 GDD average. Although Winter was fairly cold, without too many nights below zero significant winter injury was not an issue. Spring was chilly, but the cool temperatures prevailed late into the season which delayed bud break and bloom. While summer provided ample sunshine and moderate rainfall, there was not enough warmth in July and August to catch up. Once again, September came to the rescue by staying dry and warm with little rain and humidity. This scenario allowed the grapes to hang on the vines a bit longer into the season which raised sugars and reduced the stubbornly high acid levels. Look to the 2019 wines to show vibrant freshness, excellent balance, and mouthfeel.
