2016 Bass Phillip "Crown Prince" Pinot Noir, Gippsland

Bass Phillip was founded by Mr Phillip Jones in 1979 at the age of 32. He told us, years ago, that he had planted Cabernet Sauvignon in the early days because his favourite wine was a classified growth Bordeaux and he wanted to replicate it. Fortunately, or unfortunately, not a single grape was grown. He then decided to replace the Cabernet Sauvignon with Pinot Noir and what a fantastic decision he made!

Bass Phillip has been organically farmed since 1993, and biodynamic since 2002. Today, the estate is run by Jean-Marie Fourrier, a very talented Burgundian winemaker that has done an internship with the legendary Henri Jayer. Henri was a French vintner who, it is said, revolutionised Viticulture and winemaking in Burgundy.

Why do we like it?

These wines are becoming super rare. This is the old school Phillip Jones as you will never see again. After he sold the business in 2019, new ways, new techniques are in place...exciting too. But for now, we are super proud to secure an allocation of these wines that we love and cherish so much!
