Master Sommelier & Top Burgundy Winemaker Rock the House

Lingua Franca was co-founded by Larry Stone Master Sommelier, David Honig, and Dominique Lafon (Domaine Lafon Winery) in 2015, inspired by the exceptional vineyard site in the Eola-Amity Hills that Larry bought in 2012. They soon hired Thomas Savre, a brilliant young winemaker with work experience at some of the best domaines in Burgundy and an inquisitive mind. Together they have assembled a team of talented and passionate members. All are committed to farming and winemaking practices that respect the environment, believing that complex and undisturbed ecosystems help to create the most interesting and seductive wines. Dominque Lafon is also the consulting winemaker!

On the palate, the wine is quite dense and rich, powerful in expression, with a perfect balance of red and black fruits, dark plum, pomegranate and raspberry, then the nuances of wet stone, savory herbs come through in the lifted lingering finish and velvety texture.

Winery Notes: “Sourced from our best-performing blocks of estate-grown Pinot Noir, the Lingua Franca Estate Pinot Noir begins with a heady scent of roses and red fruits. On the palate, the wine is quite dense and rich, powerful in expression, with a perfect balance of red and black fruits, dark plum, pomegranate and raspberry, then the nuances of wet stone, savory herbs come through in the lifted lingering finish and velvety texture.”

Wine Spectator 94 Points: “A wine with presence and a tight but refined core of bright acidity and tannins, framed by expressive rose petal, raspberry and river stone accents. Best from 2020 through 2027.”

Food Pairing Notes: This is a serious, but versatile wine that pairs well with a variety of meats, from roast chicken to veal, lamb, or pork.
