“Eric Sussman, of Radio-Coteau, apprenticed at Comte Armand in Pommard after studying agriculture at Cornell. Radio-Coteau is his joint venture with Bill and Joan Smith, who make some very fine Pinot under their own name. Radio-Coteau is a colloquialism he picked up in France, meaning broadcasting from the hillside, or word of mouth. which nicely captures the spirit of his venture and that of many of his Pinotphile neighbors. A Pinot Noir specialist, Mr. Sussman buys grapes from cool-site vineyards, mostly in Sonoma County, and sells his beautifully balanced wines largely via his mailing list.”
