Overview of the Wine
Beaux Frères is one of the earliest and now leading wineries in Oregon, founded by Michael G. Etzel, and brother-in-law (“Beaux Frères” in French) wine critic Robert M. Parker Jr in 1986. Located on an 88-acre farm, Beaux Frères resides on the most prestigious terroirs of Willamette Valley. Since their first vintage in 1991, the Beaux Frères philosophy remains the same; to produce a world-class Pinot Noir from small, well-balanced yields and ripe, healthy fruit that represent the essence of the vineyard. Beaux Frères has had biodynamic and organic practices since 2002.

In 2017, Maisons & Domaines Henriot embarked on a partnership with Michael Etzel acquiring Beaux Frères.

In the summer of 1986, my young family and I began on a journey that, in our wildest optimism, never thought Beaux Frères and our Oregon wine industry would be on the center stage with the fine wine industry. I believe our success is a lesson for anyone with a dream: follow your heart. – Michael G. Etzel, Founder and CEO

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
This wine is one that comes along only once in a rare while! Les Cousins is a second label Pinot Noir of Beaux Freres Vineyards that’s a selection from the barrels in their cellar. A relatively few cases were produced of this silky, but boldly expressive Pinot. Like all of their wines, it’s bottled unfined and unfiltered AND it’s about half the price of the regular Beaux Freres wine. Don’t miss this!
