Domaine Drouhin Oregon Chardonnay Dundee Hills Arthur 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Ripe, healthy fruit was hand-picked into small totes, and then whole-cluster pressed. Half of the juice was fermented in French Oak barrels (30% new) to create a round, rich texture. The other half was fermented and aged in stainless steel to maintain the purest and most elegant expression of Chardonnay. After eight months, these two styles were blended to create a cuvée of a more delicate nature - to Véronique, it is as if one brought together elements of a pure Chablis and a gentle Meursault.

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

With a little almond, smoke and a hint of Quince on the nose, this is rather gentle. Emerging top notes of flowers and a nice, fresh yeastiness. Bright on entry with fine acidity backed up by a lot of fresh fruit. Crisp and clean. Very finely focused, as well as lively and elegant on the fairly long finish, which shows a hint of orange cream. 89pts
