While Burgundy Pinot Noir is "naturally gifted" with the terroirs it holds, there are still great examples from outside of Burgundy, especially those that are produced by experienced winemakers from Burgundy and even more so from winemakers from top domaines like that of Méo-Camuzet, which is Nicolas Jay.
Nicolas Jay is a venture of a celebrated Burgundian winemaker Jean-Nicolas Méo of Domaine Méo-Camuzet and his friend Jay Boberg - a renowned music and media entrepreneur. Jean-Nicolas and Jay's friendship goes way back to 1988, when Jean-Nicolas was studying abroad in the United States. Though Jean-Nicolas soon immersed himself in guiding his family’s renowned Domaine Meo-Camuzet, and Jay continued to build his own IRS Records into a seminal indie label, they stayed friends over the next quarter century. During this time, they also discovered a shared interest in the quality and potential of the Pinot Noirs from Oregon, so in 2012, together they established their new venture in the heart of Oregon's Willamette Valley in which Jean-Nicolas Méo has been fully in charge to craft their exciting and elegant Pinot Noirs to show the terroir of this Valley.
Their debut vintage 2013 had sold out upon its release and qualities have excelled in the following vintages. We are pleased to offer today their Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2017 at as low as just HK$400 per bottle. This is a great opportunity to experience profound Pinot Noir from a different terroir by the hands of a winemaker from a renowned Burgundy domaine. Jancis Robinson described their wines as "traditional French winemaking meets quintessential Oregon terroir" -

A lovely wine, elegantly expressive and complex, with raspberry and rose-petal aromas accented by a hint of cardamom. Builds tension toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2029"
…this wine displays aromas of wet earth, Earl Grey tea and cocoa nibs, followed by flavors of pomegranate and red plum skin. It's classic Oregon Pinot Noir, and one can see the Méo-Camuzet influence…
Deep, glistening red. Sexy, assertively perfumed aromas of fresh red fruits, potpourri and baking spices, with a hint of cola in the background. Juicy and focused on the palate, Jay's 2017 Pinot Noir offers vibrant raspberry, bitter cherry, blood orange and rose pastille flavors…
