While establishing his career in Switzerland, JC honed his skills on Pinot Noir and is therefore familiar with the challenges faced when cultivating what can be a fickle grape. Before planting his Pinot at Creation he meticulously considered aspect, soil and row direction and selected only virus-free clones (Dijon 115 and 777) for their suitability to the terroir. His Pinot vineyards are planted on south-easterly, easterly and north-easterly slopes with each site expressing itself in its own stylistic way

Notes of sweet-spiced cherry pie, mocha and delicate violet dance in the glass of this enticing Pinot. The palate is light in body, yet robust in feel, with flavors that mirror the bouquet and delicate tannins that lend a soft, pleasant structure to the sip."
