Domaine Drouhin Oregon is a long-time favorite wine estate of the Murray family. We met winemaker Véronique Drouhin-Boss when she first embarked upon her Oregon winemaking adventure in the early 1990's and was releasing her first vintages of 1988, 1989 and 1990. Visiting Oregon wine country was a revelation back then, and the Drouhin family's positive influence on the Willamette Valley is legendary. Véronique Drouhin-Boss always seeks to capture the essence of what nature has provided in the estate's vineyards each year, rather than trying to dictate a particular style. The wines at Domaine Drouhin are hallmarked by elegance, finesse, purity, and the capacity to improve gracefully with age. Domaine Drouhin Oregon uses approximately 20% new oak for their Pinot Noirs, which allows the character of the wine and vintage to show through. Barrels are custom made in Burgundy, using oak from France's best forests. The goal is to produce Pinot Noirs with balance, elegance and finesse.

Domaine Drouhin is home to 90 acres of hillside vineyards in the heart of Oregon's Red Hills of the Willamette Valley, producing stunning Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays that are noted internationally for their pure expression of fruit, superior balance, silky texture, and classical elegance. The 90 acres of hillside vineyards that ribbon the 225-acre estate are at the very heart of Domaine Drouhin wines. Situated atop the Dundee Hills, between 400 and 800 feet in elevation, the site was selected for its remarkable similarity in climate, latitude and aspect to the legendary vineyards of Burgundy.' Domaine Drouhin remains one of the standards against which other Oregon Pinot Noirs must be measured.' - The Wine Advocate

Aroma: Intensely aromatic and complex on the nose. Aromas include dried flowers, violet, spices, blueberry and touch of orange blossom. Flavor: The palate is captivating, displaying great concentration, with refined texture. It is beautifully balanced, with a long aftertaste.

Medium ruby, the 2018 Pinot Noir Laurène opens with pure raspberry, rhubarb and aniseed perfume with accents of bergamot and forest floor. The medium-bodied palate is concentrated, super spicy, firm and very fresh, finishing uplifted and loaded with perfumed fruits. Give it another 2-3 years in bottle.
