Domaine Drouhin Pinot Noir "Cuvee Laurene" Oregon 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting notesThe 2013 Laurène impresses with its charm and character. It is vibrant, but also shows restraint, which allows the detail of the vintage to be expressed. The wine has a beautiful ruby rose color that allows one to see its depth. On the nose, the 2013 Laurène carries notes of pure, sweet cherry, pomegranate, baking spice, ripe blackberries, wild herbs and fresh sage. On the palate, the body is lovely and encompassing, creating a long, elegant, and appealing finish. I trust this wine will age for 7-10 years easily, but it is also delicious to enjoy now. Santé!

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
