Drouhin Bonnes Mares 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

" A very densely fruited nose that possesses seemingly one layer after another of both red and blue fruit aromas, earth hints and a discreet note of minerality though it is distinctly less floral than the Grands Ech and leads to rich, full, naturally sweet and sappy flavors and I really like the textured mouth feel here as well as the explosive finish. While it's much too soon to tell, it would not surprise me if this competed successfully for the best wine in the range in 2007 as it appears to have every bit the quality of material as the Musigny, even if it is just a bit less structured...93" BH 08/09

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
