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

91 Points - The Wine Advocate "The 2008 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley which contains 5% purchased fruit. Medium ruby in color, it gives up an alluring bouquet of cedar, cinnamon, incense, black raspberry, and black cherry that jumps from the glass. This leads to a dense, ripe, spicy, well-balanced wine with enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years (ageability being a significant trait of the vintage). This lengthy effort will be at its best from 2012 to 2020. "91 Points - International Wine Cellar "Bright ruby. High-pitched aromas of strawberry, raspberry, licorice, white pepper and Asian spices, plus a whiff of dried rose. Sappy, racy and pure, with sharply delineated flavors of red berries, cherry and spicecake. Comes across as very lively owing to an impression of high acidity. Youthfully tight wine, finishing with excellent purity and energy and a jolt of candied flowers. This will be even better for four or five years in the bottle."Winemaker's notes: The 2008 is gorgeous, complex, intense, and very youthful. Aromatically expressive, I find notes of red and black cherry spice box and cedar. Already elegant and lovely, this cuve has excellent weight, balanced with firm acidity and a very long finish. Though enjoyable now, it will develop substantially in the years to come, and should easily age for 10-15 years.
