Voix de la Vigne

image94

Housed  in a fully modern winemaking facility in Dundee, Oregon, Voix de la  Vigne wines are made by French-born winemaker Bruno Corneaux. 

The  wines are crafted to express the purity of each grape variety. These  are elegant wines, with no use of new oak, and relatively low alcohol  levels.

The grapes  are sourced from a variety of vineyard sites from both volcanic and  sedimentary soils. These vineyards are under the viticultural control of  Bruno Corneaux and his team.

Voix  de la Vigne wines are dressed up to evoke classics from the old world.  The label is not only pleasing to the eye, but serves also as an  indication of what the buyer can expect from the wine.

The  intent is to ‘speak’ to the wine buyer who is interested in wine of  elegance and finesse- the hallmark of the Voix de la Vigne brand.

2016 Vintage Summary

Similar to the last two vintages, the 2016 growing season continued to push the envelope for defining the new normal in Oregon as one of the earliest on record. An unusually warm spring gave way to moderate summer conditions, which provided even growing conditions through véraison. Though it was an intense growing season due to the early start, the fruit produced throughout the state resulted in wonderful concentra-tion and complexity with characteristic natural acidity.

The 2016 vintage saw practically immaculate fruit with few signs of disease, pest or bird effects. Vineyards and wineries in the Willamette Valley were largely finished with harvest by the end of September to early-October, while wineries in other regions carried on through 

mid-to-late October depending on the varieties planted. Because of the cooler temperatures in September and October, Growing Degree Days (GDD) accumulation in the western valleys ended up between the totals seen in 2013 and 2014. Lower GDD was also seen in eastern Oregon and Washington where the coolest conditions in the Pacific Northwest were experienced.

2018 Vintage Summary

Spring in Oregon always has plenty of liquid sunshine.By April and May of 2018, the wet spring had loaded the vineyards with plenty of water reserves as some warmer

days and sunshine began to pepper the vineyards. Our vines awoke from their winter slumber with bud-break in late April, and they were met with welcoming mild and consistent weather. Bloom occurred on schedule during the second week of June with little rain, something that vineyard managers and winemakers alike always appreciate.

True Oregon summers don’t really set in until after the fourth of July, and when it arrived, it brought a steady dose of sunshine; the weather remained moderate and dry throughout the summer months. The ample hours of sun and warm temperatures mixed with cool breezy night helped shape 2018 in a fabulous vintage with a decent sized crop but with wonderfully concentrated flavors as the vines were stressed just enough by the heat to produce something magical. With near perfect weather leading up to the pick, the fruit came in beautifully.

2018 Vintage Summary

True Oregon summers don’t really set in until after the fourth of July, and when it arrived, it brought a steady dose of sunshine; the weather remained moderate and dry throughout the summer months. The ample hours of sun and warm temperatures mixed with cool breezy night helped shape 2018 in a fabulous vintage with a decent sized crop but with wonderfully concentrated flavors as the vines were stressed just enough by the heat to produce something beautiful.

From the wine-making side, what style of year it’s going to be (cool vs. warm) is often determined by the weather in the spring and early summer, while the quality of the vintage is not established until late summer/early fall. In 2018, with the threat of a few consecutive days of rain at the end of September, we began picking white wines in the third week of the month into early October. The Pinot Gris fruit was whole-cluster pressed immediately upon arrival at the cellar and the juice allowed to settle for 36 hours. The juice was then racked clean into stainless steel fermenters and underwent fermentation for three weeks at medium to low temperatures of between 60°F and 66°F. The wine was then filtered and bottled.

Voix de la Vigne Cabernet Franc

2016 Viox de la Vigne Cabernet Franc

100% Bel’ Villa Vineyard

100% Cabernet Franc

Aged for 20 months in 2 year old French oak barrels Alcohol 13.9 pH, 4.08 TA

6.7 g/L

Nice dark, late summer strawberry, cocoa, dried thyme and basil, with a touch of graphite. There is a colorful mix of dried, savory herbs in this wine that pairs beautifully with the fruit. Undertones of cocoa, just a hint of coffee and earthiness really create a lovely blend of aromatics in the classic, yet somewhat bold Cabernet Franc. The bright entry mixes well with the slightly creamy berry mid-palate. The finish is lengthy with fine tannin and flavors of thyme, mocha and just a touch of spice and earth. I love this Cabernet Franc because it show respect and restraint. It’s a classic, with a bit of a new world twist.

2017 Vintage Summary

2017 was a return to normal for the Willamette Valley after three consecutive warm vintages. The fundamental characteristics of the Willamette Valley’s climate is cool and moderate; ripening each cluster on the edge of the on-set of fall. This type of growing season allows for complexities in favor and for tannins to develop while retaining the backbone of the wines’ acid. 

Our latest edition in a 'go anywhere' can. Perfect for the beach, pool, park, parties and so much more! A tropical island in a glass. Pineapple, guava, sea breeze,married with white flowers and fresh-cut strawberries. Broad and juicy structure on the palate with crisp vibrancy and a dry finish.

This Rose is made from Pinot Noir (10%), Pinot Gris (40%), Riesling (35%) and Muscat (15%). 100% of the Pinot Noir was destemmed and placed in the press with whole-clusters of Pinot gris, Riesling and Muscat. The press was rotated, and allowed to sit for 4 hours, then the

fruit was gently pressed. The juice was settled, racked and fermented together giving a subtle yet vibrant pink color.
