Domaine Drouhin Oregon Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 1996

Winemaker's Notes:

This is a wine with good depth and concentration. The nose offers attractive, fruity aromas. The palate has fine tannins and a lovely, long smooth finish. Can be enjoyed now or over the next six, seven years.

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

Wohldosierte, feine Fruchtaromen in Kombination mit dezenten herbalen und mineralischen Noten bieten einen nachhaltigen Sinneseindruck in der Nase. Finessenreich, elegant und strukturiert präsentiert sich dieser Pinot Noir, der viele Gemeinsamkeiten mit den grossen Burgundern aufweist, was uns hinsichtlich des Stammbaumes nicht überrascht. Der grosse Charakter zeigt sich im eleganten, harmonischen, lange anhaltenden Abgang.



This is a wine with good depth and concentration. The nose offers attractive, fruity aromas. The palate has fine tannins and a lovely, long smooth finish. Can be enjoyed now or over the next six, seven years.
