Domaine Drouhin Pinot Noir Oregon Laurène 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 Puligny “Pucelles” from Maison Drouhin was also already bottled and was showing beautiful potential. The deep, pure and very classy nose jumps from the glass in a blend of peach, apple, crème patissière, apple blossoms, chalky soil and a deft touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and quite succulent on the attack, with a lovely core of silky fruit, excellent focus and balance, crisp acids and impressive length and grip on the seamless and elegant finish. Classic Pucelles...92+" JG 1/12

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
