The Wine

Les Perles Noires is a hand selection of the most pristine Pommard clusters shaped with beautiful black pearl-like berries, fermented in a small tank with 50% whole clusters. It was then aged in a once-filled French oak barrel for 14 months. The aromas reveal elevated spices and red fruit, dark cherries, cedar and cranberry notes. The very vibrant mouthfeel is elegant and refined with its crunchy small red fruit flavors that roll under the palate like thousands of precious aroma pearls.

The Winery

Domaine Divio’s name comes from the early designation of the town of Dijon, France, where Bruno Corneaux, a fourth-generation grape grower from the Beaune region in Burgundy, received his master’s degree in enology and viticulture. Working harvest in the Willamette Valley in 1996, Bruno fell in love with this part of Oregon.

After years of winemaking around the world, he brought his passion and knowledge of the Pinot noir and Chardonnay grapes back to the Willamette Valley in 2009 and developed his own beautiful estate on Ribbon Ridge in 2014 with a vision of the best Pinot noir and Chardonnay possible.
