Le Puits Sec (Estate Vineyard)

While not officially state vineyard, our baby, most important. What I felt most pressure in to screwing up. When Russ pressed me to to buy he didn’t mind changing the winery name but made a promise not to change name of LPS. Russ was ahead of his time; tight, Burgundian influenced spacing. Started organic farming early 90s. Certified in 2000. Gentle slope, east-facing looking to Burgundy for influence. 2/3 is pinot noir (1986), Just under 13 acres. Picked in 7-8 passes in different blocks, different sections ripen differently. For last 10 years, Cuvee J is exclusively LPS.
