Bergstrom has been dutifully making some of the finest, most age-worthy Oregon Pinots for nearly 20 years. Few producers have established such a reputation for consistency of excellence. Fewer yet have racked up the impressive accolades that Bergstrom has: nearly every wine scores 90+ in all the major publications with many selections fetching eye-opening scores of 95+ points! It comes down to a passion for sustainable agriculture, a focus on the details, and employing state of the art techniques in the cellar which extract the maximum potential from the excellent fruit they work with.
The Le Pre du Col Vineyard is a Bergstrom estate holding in the Ribbon Ridge AVA with nice warm south-facing aspect and thin, marginal Marine Sedimentary soils. The wines from here tend to have a warm baking spice element to them, firm structure, and earthy richness. The Le Pre du Col garnered some fame for Bergstrom when their 2013 bottling captured the #14 spot on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wines of the World, along with an eye-opening score of 95 pts. Indeed, this offering is often the crowd favorite of the entire Bergstrom line-up. It’s absolutely decadent!
