Clos de Vougeot Joseph Drouhin 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

"Here the surprisingly spicy nose consists of deft wood and ripe dark berries along with ample amounts of earth and sauvage hints. The full-bodied and overtly powerful flavors possess excellent size and weight as well as fine mid-palate concentration that help to buffer the very firm tannic spine that shapes the youthfully austere finish. Patience is very definitely required as this should age effortlessly for years...93" Burghound 04/16

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
