As of this 2018 vintage and with his old vines, great genetic material, and field blends, Pascal felt the name Passetoutgrain was too generic and did not do justice to the wine. He chose to call it Pourpre in reference to its deep purplish hue.

Pourpre is a nearly 50/50 blend of Pinot Noir and Gamay. Sourced from 20-50 year old vines
