96pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Disgorged in June of 2021, the 2011 Brut Extended Tirage has pretty scents of red berries, crushed herbs, lemon pith and stony nuances with top notes of floral perfume. The palate surprises with its depth of flavor and pure floral perfume, boasting a creamy, seamless mouthfeel and long, ethereal finish.

93pts The Somm Journal

From one of the Willamette Valley’s coolest vintages in decades comes this blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay, which kicks off with notes of orchard fruit, honey, and croissant; lemon-wedge acidity interacts beautifully with the creamy yet buoyant mouthfeel while wild strawberry and lime curd come into play.

92pts Wine Spectator

A lovely bubbly that's rich and focused, offering luxurious baked pear, fresh ginger and warm yeast roll notes that glide on the polished finish.

Winemaker Notes

Highlighted by its tense backbone and well-framed acidity, the 2011 Brut was especially set up for long term aging on the lees. Creamy and layered textures are buoyed by the freshness of recent disgorgement. Ripe nectarine, white cherry, and honeycomb, are layered with the mature complexity of brioche and roast hazelnut, bringing harmony to a graceful and elegant finish.

Blend: 60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay

Winery Notes

Founded in 1987 as Oregon's original sparkling wine house, Argyle quickly stood out as a study in contrasts—honoring the deep traditions of wine and embracing innovation and experimentation; proud to be Oregonian and pulling knowledge from winemakers around the world. When common knowledge said a winery could produce great sparkling wine or great still wine Argyle asked "why not both?", answering the question with acclaimed wines from Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier, and Riesling.

Their four estate vineyards make up nearly 500 acres in the Willamette Valley, with the majority in the Eola-Amity Hills and Dundee Hills nested AVAs. Willamette Valley's cool, late ripening climate produces age worthy base wines. The vineyards, nearing 1000' in elevation, ensure fruit develops slowly, retains acidity, and promotes flavor ripeness before sugar ripeness.

Nate Klostermann is the second winemaker in Argyle's 35-year history and has emerged as one of Oregon's most gifted winemakers. He currently celebrates nearly two decades at Argyle and continues to say he "landed in a good spot" when he arrived at Argyle to work his first harvest. With his fine-tuned winemaking skills and passion for Oregon wine, Nate is now recognized for making elegant and complex sparkling wines along with vibrant and impeccably balanced Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot Meunier.
