From the time he was a child, Francis Ford Coppola had such a keen interest in engineering and technology that his family nicknamed him ‘Science.’ Over the years, Francis has paid tribute to a number of scientific achievements by naming wines and spirits after some of history’s greatest minds. With The Family Coppola’s new property in Oregon, Francis wanted to endow the estate with a name that honored the scientific accomplishments of Maison de Broglie, a noble house of France, whose contributions to physics and quantum theory resulted in a Nobel Prize for Louis de Broglie, a man whose scientific contributions coincided with those of Albert Einstein.

Wine Notes

This Pinot Noir displays tremendous complexity. Darkly colored with a purple hue, the wine offers an intense fragrance, good balance, and firm tannins. Aromas of red currant, cherry, hyacinth, and baking spice are tinged with a hint of earth. The palate is silky and round with sweet flavors emboldened by spice notes and a long, dramatic finish.

Block C, an 8-acre parcel, is planted exclusively with Clone 777 and resides at the highest altitude of all our vineyards. This block is shaped like a spherical cap, giving it sun exposure on all sides.

The 2017 vintage began with a cool, wet spring, which delayed bud break, bloom, and set. Though temperatures were mild until July, ripeness eventually caught up so that harvest commenced on schedule by the middle of October.
