RoseRock is the Oregon passion project of the Drouhin family, of Domaine Drouhin Oregon and Maison Joseph Drouhin fame. The winemaking roots of this family date back to 1880 in the Burgundy region of France. A century later, Maison Joseph Drouhin ventured out of Beaune with the establishment of Domaine Drouhin Oregon, in the Willamette Valley’s Dundee Hills. Today, the Drouhin family’s commitment to exploring and expressing the terroirs of Oregon has blossomed at RoseRock in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA. Sustainable agriculture advocate Philippe Drouhin continues the family's history as RoseRock's Vineyard Manager along with his sister, winemaker Véronique Boss-Drouhin, a graduate in oenology whose post-graduate work focused on Pinot Noir, but of course she crafts beautiful and refined Chardonnay-based whites as well...

Top 100 #15 of 2022. Opulent and refined, with a vibrant core of acidity framed by pear, cantaloupe and toasty spice flavors that build depth and richness on the savory finish. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 1,557 cases made.

Roserock lies on the southern reaches of the Eola–Amity Hills near the outskirts of Salem, Oregon’s state capital. It’s a large vineyard, planted mostly to pinot noir save for about 11 acres of chardonnay planted a little over a decade ago. Those vines grew an opulent wine in 2018, made firm and shapely by the coolness of the site and of the Oregon summer. It leads with scents of honey and peach, and has a hazelnut breadth. It’s built like a Beaune wine (no surprise there); for a chicken fricassee.

Drouhin Oregon's Eola-Amity Hills Roserock vineyard is maturing nicely, as this rich, almost unctuous new Chardonnay demonstrates. Rippled with butterscotch around fruit flavors of apples and nectarines, this tasty bottle is buoyed with Meyer lemon acidity, and accented with whiffs of toasted hazelnuts.

Fragrant and floral, the 2020 Chardonnay Drouhin Oregon Roserock is fresh with aromas and flavors of salted lime zest, delicate white flowers, and green apple. Drink 2022-2030.

The 2018 Chardonnay offers bright, fresh apple fruit with deeper, more savory bass notes of honeycomb, almonds and spice. The medium-bodied palate is super silky and bursts with tensile, mineral-laced fruits, expanding into a long, juicy and gently honeyed finish.
