Domaine Drouhin Oregon Dundee Hills Pinot Noir 2015

Member Review by zufrieden:

This wine has an excellent nose; there are aromatics of Creamsicle (yes, I am serious) , earth and strawberry confit. Colour is quite deep; the core is quite deep cherry red indicative of good extraction; the rim is only showing pink at this early stage. Entry is quite round and full, with a hint of tannin on the finish, which is medium to long at this stage of development. A fine, Oregonian wine in the Cotes de Nuits tradition (not too surprisingly). This is a premium wine - though not the highest tranche - maybe a notch below. Compare with regular Nuits-Saint-Georges from the better producers in better vintages. Fairly good Price to Quality, and recommended. Does not appear to be from a Pommard clone - as is the case with Argyle Reserve. 91.

Domaine Drouhin has been on the viticultural cutting edge in Oregon since our first plantings, and we continue to set the pace. The 90 acres of hillside vineyards that ribbon our 225-acre estate are at the very heart of Domaine Drouhin wines. Philippe Drouhin is in charge of all of the estate vineyards in Oregon & Burgundy & it is his vision & passion that drives our advances & improvements in winegrowing year after year. Situated atop the Dundee Hills, between 400 and 800 feet in elevation, our site was selected for its remarkable similarity in climate, latitude and aspect to the legendary vineyards of Burgundy. DDO places more emphasis on viticulture than most producers in America. Our vines are perhaps the most densely-planted in the New World, with an average of 3,300 plants to the acre. We are also one of the few vineyards in the country to cultivate our own rootstocks and propagate all of our own plant materials. This allows us to further our vineyards with site specific rootstocks and plants. Read less
