Beaujolais Nouveau Drouhin 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

"The wines all have a deep colour of intense, blue red. They are very attractive. The nose is on the register of small black fruits with some lightly spicy notes. On the palate they are suave, but are equally very fresh. There is a clear sensation of ‘biting' into fresh fruit in the mouth. Our impressions after these tastings leave us very hopeful of a very pretty cuvée of Beaujolais nouveau in 2016." -Producer Tasting Note

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
